  2. Hi! What does Mass at the throne mean?

    1. I believe it refers to where the Cardinal is during the first half of the Mass. "... a bishop celebrates almost the entire first half of the Solemn High Mass until the offertory at the cathedra, often referred to as his throne, to the left of the altar."

  5. My family and I were blessed to be able to attend the conference as well. This Mass was truly extraordinary! We showed our priest the pictures from the Mass and he asked what the capes that your boys wore were for. Do you know the name of them and what is their significance?

    1. I'm making the connection now between you and your blog. It was so nice to meet you and your family! I believe what the boys were wearing is called a Vimpa. "The vimpa may take the form of a cape-like shawl or a many-pleated scarf, with a base colour usually of either white or silver. A vimpa can be a simple white/silver veil or can be fashioned with one or many liturgical symbols, such as crosses. The vimpa can hang on the mitre- and crosier-bearers' shoulders or be secured in the front by velcro, ribbon or even clasps. They can end as short as the server's waist, and as long as the server's feet. Due to its form, many people often mistake the vimpa for a Humeral Veil which is used to hold the Monstrance. There is nothing wrong with a vimpa being fashioned like a humeral veil as long as it is not overdone and follows important rules such as colour and design. Since it is only used at Pontifical Masses, a well-fashioned vimpa can stand out in the grandness of the celebration and appear spectacular when holding a mitre and crosier."
