Pope Francis' installation in his cathedral

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

Pope Francis' installation in his cathedral

Post by John Ainslie » Sat Apr 06, 2013 5:42 pm

Pope Francis is being installed in his cathedral church of St John Lateran this (Low) Sunday.

Here is the liturgy booklet:
http://www.vatican.va/news_services/liturgy/libretti/2013/20130407-libretto-cathedra-romana.pdf.

As you will see, it is all in Italian apart from the music, which is mostly chant (Missa de Angelis for the Ordinary) with a few pieces in Italian - among which an Entrance Song expecting the assembly to ascend to F and a setting of the response to the Embolism to the tune of a traditional Vatican national anthem.

Before jumping to conclusions about any 'new' 'Franciscan' liturgy, it is worth pointing out that this is a diocesan occasion for the people of Rome.

The entrance song won't be a problem: the f is five bars in, and they'll be at least a minor third flat by then.

Love it!!
I'm wondering why vernacular readings are responded to in Latin. Very strange.
