Introibo ad altare Dei

From FB: the old high altar, now gone (what’s there now: looks like it would make a good podium in the Mexican Congress; funny how the liberal makeover is less Christ-centred than the original... it’s more about PC ‘diversity’ than even about Mary), in Dallas’ cathedral. (If you want to do things over as a tribute to the original Spanish and Mexican Catholics of Texas rather than Anglo and Irish Victorian/early 20th-century Gothic, fine: make a mission-style building with a baroque altar!)

What Pope Benedict is starting to bring back.

From the movies a sample of how it’s used.
