Look familiar?
Singing the Exsultet during the Easter Vigil at S. Clement’s (again, wonderful use of Flash, gentlemen) — note the trident candle. In the Byzantine Rite, Galicians/Ukrainians and Ruthenians have a server hold one during the chanting of the gospel (the Russian Orthodox recension doesn’t do that). I wonder: did the Carpathian Slavs get that from the Roman Rite or is this simply a case of both rites having it?
