I was not able to see any of the canonization Mass on Sunday. Today, however, I received a question from a reader about the canopy over the Holy Father at his chair.
Whilst watching some of the Ceremonies from the Vatican last Sunday
(Oct.17th) I noted the use of a Canopy over the Papal Throne. To my mind this is the first use of the canopy in several decades ? (Since the iconoclastic 1960′s) However, none of the Catholic Blogs I frequent have even mentioned it !
Consider it mentioned!
The throne of a bishop should always have a canopy over it.
Anyone else want to chime in? I am sure there are some knowledgeable readers out there with things to contribute.
