Installation Mass of Archbishop Robert J. Carlson in St. Louis

Today, Archbishop Robert Carlson was installed as the new Archbishop of St. Louis. Having not had an opportunity to watch the Mass, which was televised on EWTN, we shall suffice for the moment to simply provide a few photographs.

Readers may recognize the vestments in question to be very similar to those recently used by Archbishop Vincent Nichols.
