What Difference A Council Makes

Over at The Hallowed Ground, you can find pictures of a Solemn Papal Mass of canonization celebrated by Pope Paul VI in the years before that horrid 1960s affair reared its ugly head. Among others, there is a picture of the Holy Father drinking the Precious Blood through a golden fistula, something which that unfortunate Council did away with. The new sancti being glorified in this Mass are St. Charles Lwanga and companions, missionaries from Africa who have sprinkled that land with their blood as a powerful witness to the grace and love of Christ. I will say no more and let the gorgeous pictures speak for themselves.
