The liturgical reform bears absolutely no relation to what is called "desacralization" and in no way intends to lend support to the phenomenon of "secularizing the world." Accordingly the rites must retain their dignity, spirit of reverence, and sacred character.

Historic Meeting of . . . Two Popes? Awesome!
published 23 March 2013 by Jeff Ostrowski

HAT CAN BE SAID about such a scene? In general, I am not a fan of cameras being so intrusive these days, especially when you have camera men running around in Church without showing reverence to the Blessed Sacrament, and so forth. However, I have to admit I am glad they had a camera to capture this (although obviously they had private meetings without cameras). I am not a person who “gets emotional” very easily, but this meeting really touched my heart.
