The Return: Classical Rite in Pantheon...


The sacristy of the Pantheon is a really interesting room. Damp, dusty and historic beyond words. But here's a nice picture of the crew (in Rome we see the universality).
Celebrant: Italian
Deacon: Austrian
Subdeacon: English
Servers: France, Canada, U.S. of A.

I think you'll find the subdeacon is Irish-Belgian; he'd be very upste to be described as English...

Yes, anybody who has been to high tea at Fortnum and Mason Picadilly since 1707 is a real Englishman!

Yes, it was all young faces.
