OK, so we’re pretty divided on the question of communion under both species. . . and the Ordinary vs. Extraordinary Forms. . . and the value of the post-Conciliar reforms. . . and the quality of the new translation of the Missal. . .

But perhaps we can all agree that the music played as the Pope censed the altar during the stadium Mass in Germany was absolutely wretched: Opening of Berlin Papal Mass.

I particularly like the expression on the Pope’s face at the end.
