British Pilgrims at Papal Birthplace
In previous posts I mentioned my visit to Marktl-am-Inn back in February. Well, here's a photo of the intrepid pilgrims (with yours truly in the centre) standing outside the papal birthplace. We had just celebrated Mass in the parish church - which has been drastically re-ordered (indeed, the whole church has been turned round 90 degrees, with the sanctuary in what used to be the side aisle). It was rather ironic that the first time I wore a chasuble with a stole fixed on the outside (there was no alternative) was on the spot where the author of such classics as The Spirit of the Liturgy was baptised!
