A Pope who knew how to Pope

Pius XII photo gallery. ‘To Pope’ meaning ‘to be a Pope’ not in the Anglican sense of ‘to convert’. The papal Mass then was the height of churchmanship itself and a tour of liturgical history: things such as a deacon in Orthodox vestments chanting the gospel in Greek, and the Pope receiving Communion standing at his throne, using a fistula (gold tube/straw).
