Someone once asked Canon McBride 'What do Canons do then?' And he replied 'Damage!' 
Here are three to choose from!!!  The picture is taken in the Underground Basilica of Pius X as we prepared for the Blessed Sacrament Procession during our diocesan pilgrimage to Lourdes.
To the left Monsignor Canon Anthony Kay, Vicar General.  To the right Canon Anthony McBride, Dean of the Cathedral and Episcopal Vicar for Formation and yours truly in the middle in the choir dress of the titular chaplains of the Lourdes Basilica.

Looks like you got the cape ! whats the pendant you are all wearing ?

The pendant is the cross that is given to those who have been appointed titular chaplains to the shrine at Lourdes. The front of the cross has a depiction of Our Lady of Lourdes and on the back St Pius X.
