In reply to: George 's message, "I remember from back in the 70s when watching Merv one day he happened to mention that the european seminarians, studying for the priesthood never wore pants under their cassocks. It was an eye opener to this man. I wondered about him ever since he said it." on 03:07:51 08/23/07 Thu

"...he happened to mention that the european seminarians, studying for the priesthood never wore pants under their cassocks."

As someone who once was a seminary student in Belgium I can tell you there is absolutely no truth to that little factoid! In fact it's ridiculous. Perhaps some Scotsmen go "regimenal" and wear nothing under their kilts. But semanarians not wearing pants under their cassocks? I don't THINK so! That would have been found out and corrected really quick. The Europeans have little patience with silliness.

BTW, I did not complete my studies and returned home early. I had fallen in love with a young woman, now my wife of over 25 years.
