[quote=kellie]My two priests dont wear the collar, but they are always nicely dressed, in a shirt and tie.
They always have a cross on their lapel.
I dont think the collar is necessary anymore.
I wouldnt want to see them wearing an “eminem” t-shirt though
It makes zero sense for a priest to go through the trouble of wearing a tie and NOT to wear the Roman collar instead.
That IS their tie. I can see how a priest need not wear the Roman collar in some situations, but anytime a secular male would wear a tie is the exact time a priest should wear a roman collar – for vestments for the Mass.
