CIEL Liturgy Conference in Rome...


Conference participants, some of whom were clergy, were eager to offer their morning Masses in the Vatican Basilica.
Here we see a monk, perhaps a Frenchman, praying his morning Mass in the forma extraordinaria over the tomb of Blessed John XXIII.

Wonderful - if it weren't for that incredably tacky grille in front of the sarcophagus of Bl. John XXIII. I can't even look at it.

Isn't there a maniple mising in the picture?

BTW, thanks for adding me to your list of blogs.

I hope to get to Rome again soon. It was four years ago when I was there. I went on pilgrimage with friends. Our days were spent seeing churches and the sights and our nights spent going to pubs and clubs. (Have you ever had a drink called a "Flaming Lamborghini"?) I also went to the Wallbuilders' church most days for the Low Mass. Sadly the siesta seemed to elude me every day until one night at dinner I started to close my eyes and my head nearly hit the ossobucco...

Very memorable trip!

Roma, una vita non basta!

"Perhaps a Frenchman"? That looks like none other than Abbot Louie Marie of Le Barroux.
