Ordinations at Lateran Archbasilica...

It was evident to everybody present why the big ordinations were always done here back in the day - from a simple portable altar.
It's a sober and stunning effect to be there in front of the actual episcopal throne of the Vicar of Christ on earth and to see the permanent altar in which only he, in theory, can celebrate Holy Mass on.
The affect is one of awe, reverence, piety, fear, devotion and respect.
