Not that a Western clergy collar is the mark of the beast but it looks like Fr. Watson is wearing one of those in his ordination photo with Vladyka Jerome. Why was he not ordained in Western vestments? At least an amice would have covered the collar.

A better question would be why a Western Rite priest was ordained in Eastern Rite vestments?
