for Benedict’s cause

If the hat fits...

Even in Rome, winter days can get bitterly cold. At an outdoor audience in December 2005, Benedict stays warm with a camauro.

Benedict was given another hat at the beginning of World Youth Day in Madrid on 18 August 2011. The Pontiff was apparently quite pleased with the gift. Protection from the sun is always welcome on hot summer days.
