P.S. to Landazuri Ricketts

Nainfa states that
    "Cardinals and Bishops belonging to Religious Orders are not allowed the use of a red or purple cappa magna. Their Cappae, made of woolen material, are of the same color as the outer part of the order habit.
Still, there seem to have been exceptions or privileges. I just found this photo of Cardinal Landazuri Ricketts:

I don't think there were exceptions in this case. He just used the privilege of using the regular prelatical colors for a Cardinal.

I had seen this picture before, too, and there are other pictures of Landazuri as Bishop wearing his prelatical attire with the colors of a regular Bishop... maybe he just liked to use both?
