Franciscan altar arrangement? don't you mean Benedictine?

Fr. Allan J. McDonald said...

No, I've renamed it the Franciscan Altar arrangement as the candles are now not straight across the altar, but angled. Thus the "Franciscan Altar arrangment" henceforth!

I did notice the Holy Father received the gifts at this Mass!

Vonny Von said...

ohh I see! well then! that's very clever Father! did you attend Mount St. Marys?

ytc said...

Vonny, he did attend Mount St. Mary's...

Anyway, I see that the chasuble is largely the same as the white one he wore a few days ago. It seems sets of vestments have been made in the same style in all the colors. I do see a peek of brocade, which is nice.

Also, it seems the coat of arms is now complete and hanging from the loggia.

No, no, no, I went to Roland Park, Saint Mary's, PI went to the Mount!

Pre-BXVI, I recall there were two candles on each side of the altar, arranged diagonally, with the altar cross situated between the two on the celebrant's left. It was this particular arrangement that then-cardinal Ratzinger criticized in "Feast of Faith" and his "Spirit of the Liturgy".

The coat of arms on the loggia is that of Pope Benedict.

Pater Ignotus said...

And when you type or say "The Mount," a slight bow of the head is rubrically correct!

And I am right and you are right and all is right as right can be!

And you are right and we are right and all is right as right can be!

That's odd, based on what I've seen people do when they say "The Mount", I'd have thought rolling of the eyes or spitting on the pavement was rubrically correct for that instituition.

Pater Ignotus said...

Temp - And once again, you'd be wrong. And the proper name, by the way, from those who are "in the know" is "Holy Mother Mountain." (bowing head thrice)
