My dear Fathers,
Practically half the year dedicated to St. Joseph Vaz is over. While I wish to thank you for all the parish level programmes you are implementing to achieve the objectives of this year, we also need to focus on our own priestly life and ministry to emulate the wonderful example of this unparalleled missionary, St. Joseph Vaz.
As we discussed at our last monthly recollection we have to strive towards holiness as priests and be zealous shepherds to our flock. St. Joseph Vaz’s spirituality and missionary labours are inseparable. Burning with zeal for souls he rooted his missionary labours in profound prayer and asceticism. His simplicity of life and shining example of priestly virtues endeared him to the scattered flock during the persecution. No wonder that they called him “Angelic Priest” (Sammanasu Swami). The now famous phrase of our Holy Father Pope Francis that a good shepherd must be familiar “with the smell of the sheep” was so true of St. Joseph Vaz. He lived among the people, loved them and was close to them in his life style and ministry.
If are to be loving shepherds to our flock, we need to know each and everyone in our parishes and institutions personally. This is very true specially of the poor, the sick and the suffering. If we are contented by being in our mission houses and celebrating the Sacraments only, our lives must change in accordance with the life of our Apostle. During the year dedicated to Consecrated Life, the Holy Father in his letter explicitly mentioned that the biggest discrimination of our people is to deprive them of spiritual ministry.
Therefore, we need to do much soul searching as we come to know the indefatigable missionary labours of St. Joseph Vaz with no infrastructure facilities or other amenities that we enjoy today. Our accountability as shepherds has to be taken seriously. What was said in earlier times in beautiful Latin “Qualis Sacerdos, talis populus”, namely what the priest is, the people will be is true. If we are not striving for holiness through personal prayer and renunciation, combined with simplicity of life we cannot achieve the objectives of the year dedicated to St. Joseph Vaz.
Let us say the prayer of St. Joseph Vaz at the end of Holy Mass with meaning and fervor, asking the Lord “to inspire” all of us, Clergy, Religious and the lay faithful to follow his example of heroic sanctity that the whole community can be fervent missionaries. We need to commit ourselves to make our families as the Holy Family of Nazareth.
We are happy to welcome Fr. Dominic Sandanam after his Master’s Degree in Chennai University. He will assume duties with effect from 1st of July as the Rector/Principal of St. Patrick’s School, Talawakelle. The Presbyterium and the Bishop wish him God’s blessings in his new responsibilities. We shall miss Fr. Marian Leonard who has been a very committed priest co-worker. However, we are very happy to release him for the work at the Apostolic Nunciature.
Please convey our sincere thanks to all the parishioners who contributed to the “Little Hearts Project” during the Season of Lent. We shall handover to the relevant association the fund collected.
Please help our Formation Coordinator Fr. Colvin Fernandopulle when he requests your assistance for the holiday programme for the major vacation of our seminarians. We, as the presbyterium and the diocese are responsible for their formation during the major vacation.
Please do everything possible to organize the Indigenous Clergy Day which falls on the 30th of July in a meaningful manner in all the parishes and the institutions.
Wishing all of you God’s blessings!
Your devotedly in the Lord,
Bishop Vianney Fernando,
Bishop of Kandy

Pope Francis’s emphasis on simplicity and frugality is a hit all around the world, but it’s produced just a bit of backlash among fashion-conscious Italians, including an exclusive club of tailors and shoemakers who outfit pontiffs — some of whom are a little nostalgic for the days when being pope also meant dressing to the nines.
An exclusive group of tailors and cobblers who cater to the Vatican are slowly adapting to Pope Francis’s penchant for simple and plain clothing, which has inspired a demand for more practical and comfortable frocks from clergy around the world.
The Argentinian pope’s call for a Church that is dynamic and “on the move” has translated into a preference for religious clothing reflecting that zeal, and is no longer constrained by heavy fabrics and embellishments.
“Maybe once we were a bit excessive, and now slowly…” said Raniero Mancinelli, who has been a tailor for the clergy and popes for decades, in an interview with Crux.
Popes through history have always been fashion trendsetters, since they exercise influence over a vast community and their choice of jewelry and clothing often says a lot about the mission and message of the pontificate.
The past three “foreign popes,” meaning not from Italy, took a unique approach to classic papal style, and, sharing an astute grasp of the media, have left us with iconic images that will last for the ages.
No one could rock a cape like Pope John Paul II, and pictures showing his red mantle billowing in the wind, or gently wrapped around children, have left a lasting impression on Christian and secular culture. Emeritus Pope Benedict XVI, a European, dusted off the classic papal staples and ushered them into the new millennium with his unique sense of style. Francis’s preference for ‘papal athleisure,’ meanwhile, has already begun to leave its mark on history.
In 2013, the magazine Esquire, which focuses mostly on male fashion, named Pope Francis ‘The Best Dressed Man of the Year.’ The choice was obviously controversial, and the magazine explained it by saying that the pope’s style has “signaled a new era (and for many, renewed hope) for the Catholic Church.”
Adapting to Pope Francis’s style
In a small shop on the Borgo Pio, a picturesque street next door to the Vatican, Raniero Mancinelli slices away at fabric on the counter, scarlet and black scraps falling to the ground with every cut of his scissors.
Over his head, etched in wood is his name and the date the shop was opened: 1962. Mancinelli has been in the business of dressing popes for a long time, and therefore has had a front-row seat to the changes that occurred in religious garb from the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) to this day.
“It’s not as if before the clothes were more luxurious or pricey, maybe a bit more flashy and rich with details,” Mancinelli said. “Today this has changed a bit. Now with Pope Francis’s direction, people want things that are much lighter, simpler and more sober…. and consequently less expensive.” As an example, the veteran tailor said that the cross usually worn by bishops and cardinals used to be adorned with gems and gold plating.
“Now these are more popular,” he said pointing to plain crosses made of metal and wood. A quick look at the tags shows a significant difference in price.
Asked if this pope is not very good for his business, Mancinelli laughed.
“Yes… a bit,” he said, because the demand has diminished and the clothes are less costly. “A double loss, in a sense.
“It’s not a question of agreeing. One accepts this manner he has of doing things in a simpler fashion,” Mancinelli said.
But the tailor is not saddened by the change, though he admits that, to him, religious clothing has become a little plain.
“Maybe too plain compared to how they were before,” he added.
Mancinelli started his business just as the Church underwent a profound revolution. He was there when Pope Paul VI eliminated the train that cardinals used to wear, which could be up to seven meters long.
He spoke of a time when “a crease could not be ignored,” while today anything is acceptable. Pope Francis’s torn-up sleeve as he returned from a visit to the beach town of Ostia, for instance, took over the Internet in 2013.
“His vestment is very simple, he has had it for a long time,” Mancinelli said, adding that white is a very sensitive color and, by being in close contact with so many people, is susceptible to being ruined.
“I don’t exclude the possibility that in the evening he just puts it to wash, and wears it again the next morning,” he sighed.
Pope Francis also chose to have a smaller sash that is not made of silk, and breaking with tradition he refused to have his emblem etched on it.
“He’s not picky,” Mancinelli said. “I wanted to make him a new pair of trousers. His are black, and I wanted to make lighter pants to wear under the cassock. ‘No,’ he said. ‘These are fine.’
“In everything, the pope has chosen simplicity,” he said. “Things that are not expensive.”
Mancinelli admits that having grown up in a different time, he has a preference for things that are well-fitted and precise, but he also recognizes that “if the pope decided to take this position, it means that there is a reason.
“Maybe now we can concentrate more on the will of God instead of men,” he added.
The two main things to keep in mind when working for the pope, he said, are discretion and adaptability.
“The first day can be a bit shocking,” Mancinelli said, since you have to get used to a different taste and aesthetic, but after a few days he says, “you learn the differences.”
Mancinelli had a good relationship with Pope Benedict XVI. He “used vestments that were a bit more beautiful, let’s say, in the sense that they were more beautiful to look at,” he said.
Now, clergy from around the world ask Mancinelli for Pope Francis-inspired cassocks, ready for the daily wear and tear. But this new style has its advantages when it comes to time consumption.
“Once we only used silk, today the fabrics are simpler. I am making clothes for some cardinals,” Mancinelli added pointing to the scarlet scraps that littered the floor. “The fabric is very simple, made of wool and light [material].”
Silk takes much more time to sow, and the simpler fabrics mean less time to make the clothes, he said.
Pope Francis “is more focused on being a good father, a good shepherd, rather than having a beautiful cassock or pants, or even shoes,” Mancinelli said. “I wish I could live many more years, so I can see what happens next!”
The Case Of The Red Shoes
Any Italian will tell you that one key to a good look is a fine pair of shoes. Footwear is not taken lightly in the Bel Paese, and a poor choice is guaranteed to provoke criticism and directions to some cousin who can fix you up.
Pope Benedict XVI knew the importance of a good pair of shoes, and his custom-made red slippers became a trademark of his style and even earned him the title of ‘Best Accessorizer of the Year’ by Esquire magazine in 2007.
Gossip ran wild with who might be the maker of the ruby-colored papal slippers, with some claiming that they were made by the Italian fashion powerhouse Prada. But in 2005 the rumors were finally put to rest when the a cobbler from a small town in northern Italy presented Pope Benedict XVI with the shoes for all the world to see during a general audience at St. Peter’s Square.
“Dressed in white with that red shoe… it really catches the eye!” Adriano Stefanelli, a cobbler and the creator of the famous slippers, told Crux in a phone interview.
“When it comes to clothes and such things he is a very, very elegant person,” Stefanelli said about the emeritus pope, adding proudly that “the peak of his splendor” took place when he first wore the red shoes.

Stefanelli prepared six shoes in total for the German pope throughout his pontificate. He was commissioned by the Vatican for the first time in late 2013, but the high-ranking client was not satisfied with the order. Stefanelli had made the shoes in claret, the color preferred by the now-saint John Paul II, but the demand was clear: They had to be red.
“During his pontificate I received requests from all over the world for the same slipper, some wanted it red, others black,” Stefanelli said, citing among the buyers the former president of the United States, George Bush, for whom he made an identical pair in black.
The cobbler from Novara defines Pope Francis’s style as “rustic simplicity,” and places him as the “polar opposite of Pope Benedict” in terms of fashion. “Pope Francis represents humility. Very plain clothing and a simple cross,” Stefanelli said.“… He doesn’t wear the red shoes.”
Pope Francis opted for the services of his cobbler in Buenos Aires, Carlos Samaria, after he was elected. Speaking to the Italian daily La Stampa, Samaria said that the pope insisted that there be “no red shoes, black as always.”
And again, speaking to his niece Maria Ines, the pope said: “See that I am not wearing the red shoes?”
Stefanelli denies being hurt by the pope choosing not to wear his flamboyant slippers.
“Every man has his style,” he said.
He began his career as a papal cobbler by gifting a pair of shoes to Pope John Paul II, who preferred them to be dark brown and was so pleased with them that he became a regular client.
“Pope Wojtyla is kind of similar to Pope Francis. Maybe Pope Wojtyla was slightly more refined, while Pope Francis views clothing and style in a very humble way,” Stefanelli added.
When asked if he would be happy to make red shoes for Pope Francis, should he ask, Stefanelli said “Gladly. But I have my doubts.”

Pope receives delegation from Nigerian Diocese of Ahiara
At an audience for a delegation from the Nigerian Diocese of Ahiara, Pope Francis said he had been “deeply saddened” by the refusal of the diocese to accept the Bishop appointed for them. During the audience, the Pope requested explicitly that the diocese receive Bishop Peter Ebere Okpaleke, who was appointed to Ahiara by Pope Benedict in 2012. In his address to the delegation, the Holy Father, while asking pardon for the harsh language, said the Church in Ahiara “is like a widow for having prevented the Bishop from coming to the diocese.” He called to mind the parable, from the Gospel of Matthew, of the murderous tenants who wanted to steal the inheritance. “In this current situation, the Diocese of Ahiara is without the bridegroom, has lost her fertility, and cannot bear fruit. Whoever is opposed to Bishop Okpaleke taking possession of the diocese wants to destroy the Church.”
In such a situation, Pope Francis continued, where the Church is suffering, “the Pope cannot remain indifferent.”
In response to that situation, which he described as “an attempted taking over of the vineyard of the Lord,” Pope Francis asked “every priest or ecclesiastic incardinated in the Diocese of Ahiara, whether he resides there or works elsewhere, even abroad, write a letter addressed to me in which he asks for forgiveness; all must write individually and personally. We all must share this common sorrow.”
Whoever fails to do so within thirty days, the Pope said, “will be ipso facto [by that very fact] suspended a divinis [‘from divine things,’ such as the celebration of the sacraments] and will lose his current office.”
This course of action was necessary, he continued, “Because the people of God are scandalized. Jesus reminds us that whoever causes scandal must suffer the consequences. Maybe someone has been manipulated without having full awareness of the wound inflicted upon the ecclesial communion.”
Following the Pope’s address, Cardinal John Onaiyekan, Archbishop of Abuja and Apostolic Administrator of Ahiara, thanked the Holy Father. Following his remarks, the Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, Cardinal Fernando Filoni, asked the Holy Father that the Diocese of Ahiara, with its Bishop, might make a pilgrimage to Rome to meet with him when the situation was resolved; a request the Pope accepted.
The Audience concluded with a prayer to Mary and the blessing of the Holy Father.
The full text of Pope Francis’ address can be read below:
I cordially greet the delegation and thank you for coming from Nigeria in a spirit of pilgrimage.
For me, this meeting is a consolation because I am deeply saddened by the events of the Church in Ahiara.
In fact, the Church (and excuse the wording) is like a widow for having prevented the Bishop from coming to the Diocese. Many times I have thought about the parable of the murderous tenants, of which the Gospel speaks (cf. Mt 21:33-44), that want to grasp the inheritance. In this current situation the Diocese of Ahiara is without the bridegroom, has lost her fertility and cannot bear fruit. Whoever was opposed to Bishop Okpaleke taking possession of the Diocese wants to destroy the Church. This is forbidden; perhaps he does not realize it, but the Church is suffering as well as the People of God within her. The Pope cannot be indifferent.
I know very well the events that have been dragging on for years and I am thankful for the attitude of great patience of the Bishop, indeed the holy patience demonstrated by him. I listened and reflected much, even about the possibility of suppressing the Diocese, but then I thought that the Church is a mother and cannot abandon her many children. I feel great sorrow for those priests who are being manipulated even from abroad and from outside the Diocese.
I think that, in this case, we are not dealing with tribalism, but with an attempted taking of the vineyard of the Lord. The Church is a mother and whoever offends her commits a mortal sin, it’s very serious. However, I decided not to suppress the Diocese. Instead, I wish to give some indications that are to be communicated to all: first of all it must be said that the Pope is deeply saddened. Therefore, I ask that every priest or ecclesiastic incardinated in the Diocese of Ahiara, whether he resides there or works elsewhere, even abroad, write a letter addressed to me in which he asks for forgiveness; all must write individually and personally. We all must share this common sorrow. In the letter:
1. one must clearly manifest total obedience to the Pope, and
2. whoever writes must be willing to accept the Bishop whom the Pope sends and has appointed.
3. The letter must be sent within 30 days, from today to July 9th, 2017. Whoever does not do this will be ipso facto suspended a divinis and will lose his current office.
This seems very hard, but why must the Pope do this? Because the people of God are scandalized. Jesus reminds us that whoever causes scandal must suffer the consequences. Maybe someone has been manipulated without having full awareness of the wound inflicted upon the ecclesial communion.
To you brothers and sisters, I would like to express my sincere thanks for your presence; and also to Cardinal Onaiyekan for his patience and to Bishop Okpaleke, whose patience and humility I admire. Thank you all.
