Except for this one, I can't find any still photos of the beautifully decorated altar with its marvelous frontal piece for Pope Francis' Mass yesterday at the Basilica of the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadeloupe. It is interesting to me that most traditional bloggers don't realize that Pope Francis has maintained his predecessor's altar arrangement which is sometimes called "the Benedictine arrangement" but in fact is the pre-Vatican II arrangement. Progressive blogs don't ever comment on Pope Francis' use of this or how high and long His Holiness elevates the Host and Chalice for all to adore. I find that interesting, don't you? At any rate the Mass in the modern splendor of this basilica will contrast sharply with the Mass Pope Francis celebrates for the poor in a shanty town.
