It is a “four Pope” day.
The Prefect for the Congregation for the Causes of Saints asks the Pope three times in urgent terms to inscribe the names of blesseds in the “album” of the saints.
There are prayers between the petitions and eventually the Pope does his part.
Relics of the saints are placed on display and venerated.
Benedict during the Gloria.
And here is a shot of His Mightiness, the Extraordinary Ordinary, Most Rev. Robert C. Morlino, Bishop of Madison.
How odd this seems to me, though it is great to see Benedict.
His Mightiness with more air time.
One friend calls these “judgmental umbrellas”.
What to say?
