Solemnity of Pentecost from the Vaticanby Shawn Tribe
Pentecost at St. Peter's Basilica looked to be quite a decorous occasion if the pictures tell the tale.
The Pope has brought out another Renaissance style vestment set for this occasion.
(Seven Acolytes, a more and more regular sight in papal liturgies)
(It is difficult to think of the altar any other way than this now)
(Here is a nice view of the chasuble)
More may come.
