Another new set of vestments (including a cope) has been made for the use of the Pope and his deacons-assistant. These vestments are ornamented in imitation of the well-known Greek Key interlocking squares. Once again, a new set of vestments has made an appearance, lacking any Christological symbols, made of synthetic materials, unworthy of the use of the Vicar of Christ. Yet another new mitre has been added to the Pope's collection, scarcely different from the ones already made for him.
