What's your opinion on offering Mass in baroque vestments in a Gothic chapel?

That is the general idea, actually. The chasuble is descended from the outer coat or garment of people in the ancient Roman Empire. The main problem I see with the fiddleback chasuble is that if the alb is like underwear, then you see a heck of a lot of it since the fiddleback is so minimalized. It's like the sleeveless t-shirt (or a-shirt, I suppose) of vestments.


I used to be a big fan of Baroque style, but not so much anymore. I agree with Augustus Pugin, that great Gothic revival architect who said Gothic was the true Christian architecture.

Restore the rood screens! Restore the minor orders!
