THE CONSISTORY: Red Hats, Reporters and Rope-Lines, Oh My!

Love -- in the form of scarlet watered silk from the vesture houses -- is in the Roman air this week. In abundance.

As you see at left, Cardinal- designate Levada was handed his biretta (on the traditional silver platter) by the Knights of Malta on the afternoon his elevation was announced.


And the Boston Globe's Michael Paulson is on the ground in the Eternal City -- and blogging, no less....

So read up, soak it up, and get ready for a thrilling week.
