The glory continues

The papal throne used by the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI for the Mass for Pope Pius XII.

Orbis Catholicvs (from where I got these images) comments:

Change is in the air, friends, and this time change is good!
Anybody in the Rome network under forty just loves to hear these words: "Come era richiesto per l'occasione dal protocollo!"
And here we have it again, the papal throne. Those who yesterday watched the Papal Mass noticed a bit of a change and here it is.
Many of us last saw this old papal treasure in the Lateran Palace museum - with the arms of Pius X on it. But Benedict brought it back and now you can see the new stemma (coat-of-arms) of the current Pontiff, now gloriously reigning.
Thank you, Msgr. Guido, and friends and long may you reign, Holy Father!
