The Holy Father uses the cope for the Candlemas part of this Feast celebrated in the great narthex of St. Peter's. Then the pope changes from the ornate cope to a new ornate chasable, quite beautiful and stunning in its noble simplicity, the kind of vestments I like! The proper chants are chanted and the Kyrie is not omitted! His Holiness Mass is almost as nice as ours at St. Joseph Church, which had all the proper chants too!
PLEASE NOTE THE STUNNING PRE-VATICAN II ALTAR ARRANGEMENT THAT THE HOLY FATHER HAS MAINTAINED TO MODEL TO THE WORLD! ALSO, PLEASE NOTE, THE AD ORIENTEM WAY THE POPE DELICATELY MODELS THE PRAYERS OF THE CHURCH, NOT IN A DRAMATIC, ACTING VOICE, BUT IN A QUIET, SOOTHING PRAYING VOICE EVEN WHEN FACING THE CONGREGATION!
