Watching the Anniversary Mass

The anniversary Mass for Pope John Paul II is just begining. The camera is focused on Cardinal Dziwisz as the procession travels from the bronze doors to the sagrato.

Pope Benedict has just arrived on camera. He looks good. It is nice to see Archbishop Marini at the side of the Holy Father. Archbishop Marini must be feeling better following his mysterious unofficial "cardiac event".

I wish the commentary would stop so we can enjoy the beautiful processional hymn.

The vestments for this Mass are red because that is the color for feasts of apostles. As successor to St. Peter, red is the color worn for funerals and memorials of popes.

I will be live blogging throughout the Mass.
