Zenit has the full schedule here. As already reported on CS and elsewhere, it will include one innovation: form II Reconciliation at St Peter’s.
According to Archbishop Piero Marini, master of papal liturgical celebrations, “Until the Renaissance, this was also one of the traditional appointments and it took place on Holy Thursday,” reported the Italian episcopate’s newspaper Avvenire. The whole Roman Curia will be invited to the Holy Tuesday celebration.
That would be interesting: picking your prelate confessor. I’m sure they have a plan for the gigantic line the laity would want to form for the pope.
The Office for the Liturgical Celebrations of the Supreme Pontiff is studying the best way to make an adequate number of confessors available in the Vatican basilica during the rite. The reason for changing this rite to Holy Tuesday is “not to crowd even more a day like Holy Thursday,” explained Archbishop Marini.
Holy Tuesday? I thought it was Tuesday of Holy Week.
