Papal Mass Germany

Well it does to the people who post here... dispassionate and reasoned debate, with a good deal of humour thrown in for good measure.

Papal Mass Germany

Post by Peter Jones » Sat Sep 24, 2011 7:28 am

Click here for the incensing of the altar. Looking at my copy of the instructions from Rome as to how to plan a papal liturgy - and with memories of a meeting with Mgr Marini - such a choice of musical offering would have received a polite but firm rejection, had I suggested something similar for Cofton Park. Not that I would have!
Any opinions expressed are my own, not those of the Archdiocese of Birmingham Liturgy Commission, Church Music Committee.

Astonishing - I half expected HH to "throw some shapes."

Are the priests in the front row just fidgeting or are the chasubles swaying in time to the beat?..
