The Altar of the Chair in St. Peter's

There has been much talk about the new altar of the chair in St. Peter's Basilica. The issue receives much attention because of the controversy surrounding the removal of the former altar, and the placing of one in a contemporary style in its place.

A video of a papal Mass at this very altar was made today, which shows it "in action" as it were.

The NLM's Matthew Alderman and Gregor Kollmorgen may have more about this altar in the near future.
