L'Osservatore photos of last Sunday's Pontifical Mass


L'Osservatore Romano has hundreds of photos from last Sunday's Pontifical High Mass at the altar of the chair in St Peter's. The set is headed Pontificale in Rito Romano Antico.

Francesco Sforza) enjoyed having something so beautiful to photograph, with such a magnificent setting, and with such a variety of clergy, religious, and laity in attendance.

Furthermore, the presence of four Cardinals is enough to convince any Roman of the way the wind is blowing...
