Rare chasuble acquired

The Vincentiana Art Collection of the Division of Mission and Ministry of DePaul University has recently acquired an early 20th century Spanish “fiddleback” chasuble.  The beautiful white silk vestment has elaborate floral embroidery motifs, silver metallic and jeweled borders.  The front of the vestment has a charming cartouche of Saint Vincent and two foundlings.  The back side of the vestment has a cartouche of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal.
