Sure wonder what’s going on over there.
Mail Online has an article with loads of pictures of the inauguration Mass of Pope Francis yesterday , including the set-up work.
Here is the altar being set up:
But by the time Mass started, someone moved the candles off to the side at angles.
What do you suppose transpired behind the scenes between then and then? And why?
Pope Francis is obviously behind the change, since this all began only since he was elected. But I can’t imagine a pope running around in the sacristy with a liturgy checklist before his inauguration Mass. Maybe he had given the direction “From now on…” earlier, the work crew didn’t know this, and Msgr. Marini’s people caught it in time?
Curious, and interesting.
