Liturgical Notes from Rome

By way of Acción Litúrgica I came across these photos of the first pontifical Mass (OF) of Mgr. Ettore Balestrero, the recently appointed papal nuncio in Colombia from what I gather. I was particularly pleased to see that the Benedictine arrangement endures (and in 'classical' form). Very good as well to see the continued use of the pontifical dalmatic. The Mass took place in Santa Maria Maggiore.

A full set of photos may be seen on L'Osservatore Romano.
