looks like it’s an East v. West show down …

… for the title of snazziest vestments.

    East is going to win as the West disarmed itself in 1964.

    I agree!. The West has some very nice traditional vestments pre Vatican 2, and some bland post Vatican 2 vestments. But in the East, all the priests actually wear their nice vestments. Not true for the majority of Roman Catholic priests. They prefer the bland post Vatican 2 vestments. This one goes to the East.

    Yep… got to admit the East has it… The west has to find the that copy of "Splendor of Polyester" and burn it. Also the East wins with Incense. I went to my old Roman Rite parish for a Sunday liturgy. The deacon censed the alter and you could barely see the smoke.My deacon at my Eastern parish censes and it looks like a fog bank coming in… LOVE IT!

    As Cardinal Ratzinger once put it, "noble simplicity" doesn't mean cheap.
