Immaculate Conception Mass at Trinita

Some pics from the Pontifical Mass celebrated by George Cardinal Pell at the FSSP parish in Urbe.

The dome

The altar, all decked out in Our Lady's favourite flowers.


Blessing the deacon.

Incensing the Gospel.

Singing the Gospel

See the faldstool cover he's sitting on? It's cloth of gold. It's very very difficult to repair. Trust me.

Smells and bells.

Recognise that ewer?

A small crowd of admirers gathered in the hallway to the sacristy hoping to be introduced. I was second. It was great.
