But you are a chosen generation, a kingly priesthood, a holy nation, a purchased people: that you may declare his virtues, who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light. 1st Peter 2:9

Oh, those silly trads wanting to restore the Sedia Gestatoria..Don’t they know it’s old-fashioned, and stupid? It’s just so…so…Romish, so particular! Don’t they know it causes ecumenical problems with our seperated Eastern Brethren? How it elevates the Bishop of Rome!
Whoa! wait, hold on a minute, these fellas don’t look like the Bishop of Rome (the hot pink vestments are a dead give away). These pics are from Episcopal Consecrations of Syrian, and Malankar Bishops. Is there a possibility there is an ancient link with the custom of the Bishop of Rome being carried on his day of Coronation? A common custom of the early Church ?
O Rome immortal, city of martyrs and saints,
O immortal Rome, accept our praises.
Glory in the heavens to God our Lord
And peace to men who love Christ!…..

Jesus saith to them: But whom do you say that I am?
Simon Peter answered and said: Thou art Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answering, said to him: Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona: because flesh and blood hath not revealed it to thee, but my Father who is in heaven. And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose upon earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven. (Matt 16:15)
