Photos: Pope Benedict XVI at First Vespers for Advent Throughout the Years

As is evident in the above image, the Holy Father is dressed brilliantly, truly radiant as the Vicar of our Lord Jesus Christ.  A continuing theme that I have shared on my blog is the Holy Father's choice in garments.  You will see that as time continues to pass, the Holy Fathere continues to wear more traditional vestments.

Below is an image from the blog Opinionated Catholic of the Holy Father at the Vespers of Advent in 2009.  More photos of the First Vespers of Advent in 2009 are available at the New Liturgical Movement.

Now for comparison purposes, look at these photos from 2008's First Vespers of Advent:
