Papa: non fara' la processione del Corpus Domini: My simple, literal translation: The pope is not going to make the procession of Corpus Christi (literal "Body of God/Lord")
Allo stesso tempo, osserva ancora il portavoce del Vaticano, ''Papa Francesco preferisce evitare di fare il tragitto sulla autovettura scoperta affinchè, secondo lo spirito della celebrazione odierna, l'attenzione dei fedeli rimanga invece concentrata sul Santissimo Sacramento esposto e portato in processione''.
My Literal Translation: At the same time, still observes the spokesman for the Vatican, (Fr. Lombardi) "the Pope prefers go in a covered car (to Saint Mary Major) so that according to the spirit of today's celebration the attention of the faithful will remain concentrated instead on the Most Holy Sacrament exposed and brought in procession."
My Comments: Isn't this a good apologetic for ad orientem as well. The priest or bishop should never detract the faithful's concentration on the sacramental actions of the celebration of the Mass. When the priest or the bishop allows his looks, facial expression of piety or lack thereof, or wonders of personality to overpower the faithful's concentration on the sacramental actions of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, this is a distraction like having the pope in a Eucharistic procession on the streets of Rome where his celebrity eclipses our Lord's presence in the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar.
