Here's a taste of just how much we've lost. In this photo, taken from a book, we see the splendor of the papal rites as the world knew them until the fractious sixties when they did away with most everything that was of this scale of beauty. This photo was taken in June of 1963. You can see it's the outdoor Coronation Mass of Paul VI. My pastor was there, Mons. R.J. Schuler, PhD.

This is what coronation site should be. I prefer this setting that being crowned in the Loggia, which I sense is inappropiate. Too bad that Paul VI went astray.
