Santa Croce, Rome

Casa Santa Lidia has put up some nice photos of the Solemn Pontifical Mass of Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos last weekend in Rome. Since we had not seen too many from the liturgy itself as of yet, I wanted to share them with you.

This church is that of Santa Croce al Flaminio in Rome, which includes a baldacchino over its altar -- one of my favourite features. This sort of architectural feature provdes one of the most dignified settings for the Roman altar and one which I hope we will see a greater revival of.
