I was asleep & missed it. :-(

Did Biden receive Holy Communion? Pelosi?

It’s the first thing I ask for when switching carriers.

Commentators before the Mass began said Francis would only be giving communion to the deacons. And he did in fact return to his chair after doing so.

Might have been my sleepy eyes but I didn't see anyone in the US delegation except Biden and that was before communion. I didn't see if anyone in the US delegation went to communion but if they did, they didn't get their photo op receiving from the Holy Father.

I was watching coverage on Fox News. Fr. Jonathan made it a point to say that the Vatican announced to all nations their intent for the ceremony, BUT did not invite any individual nation.

A very wise move, he left it up to the individual nations to decide if they wanted to attend, and who to send.

My goodness did you see when Francis got out of his jeep and went to bless the disabled man, the people were holding up. Put a chill up my spine even now thinking about it.

I didn't know that. Did Fr Jonathan say why Francis returned to his chair? I only caught part of the discussion before Mass and if I understood correctly, it was precisely because he knew proabortion and antiCatholic delegates would be present. But again, I missed part of that discussion.

Did you see anything scandalous from the US delegates in the coverage you watched?

I did not hear any explaination just that Francis would only present the Euchrist to deacons. We got a very wise man on the throne of Peter.

Thanks!

I’m “peeved” that I missed the Mass. I was dead tired and stone asleep.

Going to start my rosary now.

Prayers for all here on FR & our beloved Holy Father Francis.

I hope so. I had to laugh though. Did you see him check his watch right before he exited the basilica and again when he turned to recess back in? He’s a clock watcher, that one :)

No I missed that part. When I turned on the television the Mass had just begun.

I do think I saw Biden, not sure but if it was him he was wearing sun glasses.

Ya want to get a blurry screen. Watch the Holy Father bless this disable man, who would be a prime candidate for euthanasia.

In a gesture to Christians in the East, the pope prayed with Eastern rite Catholic patriarchs and archbishops before the tomb of St. Peter at the start of the Mass and the Gospel was chanted in Greek rather than the traditional Latin.

I watched the whole mass of installation for the first time. It was simple and to the point!

” In a gesture to Christians in the East, the pope prayed with Eastern rite Catholic patriarchs and archbishops before the tomb of St. Peter at the start of the Mass and the Gospel was chanted in Greek rather than the traditional Latin. “

That Gospel in Greek was very impressive. It was chanted by a priest of the Greek Orthodox Rite in Communion with Rome.

His chasuble was stunning and his voice worth of Sony. And also so reverent. Bringing the book to the Pope to bless, etc.

Never saw up close the tomb of St. Peter. Sunday night, at the close of the “Bible miniseries” when Jesus was with Peter, I thinking, today, his 266th sucessor will be installed at St. Peter’s.

“How many Catholics does it take to install a Pope?”

Went into the palace

Actually, he went into St. Peter's Basilica to the sacristy to vest for Mass. Then went to the tomb of St. Peter, in St. Peter's Basilica, to pray with eastern Catholic patriarchs and the Orthodox Patriarch Bartholomew before the procession to St. Peter's Square where the Mass took place.

The Apostolic Palace is a different building in the Vatican.

Pope Francis is now receiving the palladium and woolen stole that are symbols of papal authority.

Um, the pallium is the woolen stole.

the Gospel was chanted in Greek rather than the traditional Latin.

Usually at a Papal inauguration Mass, the Gospel is chanted in both Greek and Latin. There was a desire to not have this Mass be "too long" so the Gospel chant in Latin was not done. However, in most Papal Masses the Gospel is only chanted in Latin.

I’ve tried to follow the whole Pope thing on EWTN.com and I’ve really been disappointed. Right now I’m looking for a replay of the highlights and cannot find it. I think I’ll check Youtube.

They replayed it on one of the morning news shows & it really touched me. Like when the paralyzed man was brought to Jesus by his friends. The new pope kissing babies & then this man who would not pass muster before a death panel sends a strong pro-life signal.

I went looking for a photo/video before I saw your link & there was a still shot from CNN with the label “perhaps the most stunning image of the morning.” And to make my joy complete, the crawler captured was about 0bama’s declining popularity.

My parish priest said to listen to what the Holy Father says, but more importantly watch what he does.

I agree with their assessment. It was the MOST telling moment of the entire day.

Nope, his greatest moment of the day was to stop the procession to St Peter's and get out of his vehicle to bless a disabled man.

Listen to what the man says, but even more important watch what he does.

Nah...one can be compassionate and still a tool for the cause...

The world was his stage and instead of advancing causes that should be tantamount....he chose global warming fantasy.

Sorry that is just plain nuts.
