By now most of you know about the Douillettes for Doucheciples Project.
Thank you for keeping small people warm.
In light of recent events, and in consultation with the Imperial Warlock, here is a new project for your consideration.
CAPIROTES FOR TRADDIES PROJECT
The Project will work along the same lines as the Greca Project.
Laypeople and clerics (priests and deacons – bishops buy your own!), contact the Grand Klaxon with your information – check your hat size before you call.
Here is a handy chart about how to measure for your NECK SIZE: HERE. It is important to double-check especially if you have gained or lost a lot of weight or hair.
“Capirote” is, of course, a Spanish nickname for the long conical penitent hat. It was worn as a sign of penitence. Today it is mainly seen during Easter season processions. Spaniards also call the hat a “Nazareno – Nazarene hood.” Otherwise it is a “coroza.” “Capirote” is fun and pretty much everyone knows it.
Some people in the high realms of power are really triggered by the Capirote. It’s a curious phenomenon.
The Grand Klaxon informs me that there are a couple options for your capirote. There are different kinds of Nazarene hoods: they come in silk, (rather shiny as in the photo, below) and ordinary poly-blend medium threadcount pillowcase.
“Meno chiacchiere – più processioni!. … Less chattering – more processions!” Perhaps we can carry lit torches.
We need a hard identity as Catholic traditionalists. People should know who we are and what we stand for by our mode of dress.
Importing antiquated styles of historic headgear from Europe is a clear and convincing way to show our penitential sorrow in these lax modern times.
We should not be afraid to help our neighbors in these United States understand exactly who we are as RadTrads.
