Solemn Mass in Rome with Mons. Angelo Amodeo...









The Baroque rite with Baroque music in a Baroque Church.

The building is defined by its verticality and the dome defines the building and the dome is heaven and its windows are the cushion (culcita) of sky before the heavens are reached.
The Church is both divine and human and it prepares us through the rites for the heavenly reward and the heavens meet the earth during the divine liturgy.
