Church > State

Just an interesting observation. It is customary for bishops to wear simple damask mitres while in the presence of the Pope:

In the presence of a monarch, however, no chance. Take that, kaiser! *Update* (Yes, I know it’s Bl. Karl. This doesn’t change the observation just because he is a blessed; So don’t make a big deal out of it all of you who are writing in)

    I have no problem with your telling the Bl. Karl where he gets off; however, he was not the Kaiser – he was the Emperor of Austria, and Apostolic King of Hungary. The title “Kaiser” was unique to the German Empire.
