The new papal almoner, Archbishop Konrad Krajewski, was ordained a bishop in St. Peter’s yesterday. Here’s Francis, Bishop of Rome, on his way there. (That’s not Give Us This Day in his hand, btw.)


Francis was in attendance in simple white cassock…

…but with stole ready for the ordination part…

… like this.

Most of the prelates are wearing black cassocks, an observant eye will notice.

Archbishop Piero Marini was a co-consecrator – for the first time in nearly a decade, I’m told.
