I would like to humbly thank Mr. Dillard
for bestowing upon me the Order of Pope Pius IX. If I am ever successful enough to have His Holiness confirm Feddie's appointment, I'll get to wear deocrations such as these
(sadly, google says there are no pictures online of the decorations themselves, although if you want to spend $12, there appears to be a book
with the appropriate pictures.). Also sadly, since reforms in 1905 and 1966, the knighthood does not include a hereditary peerage.
