“The argument moves from the existence of the thing to the correctness of the thing: what is, ought to be. Or, a popular variant: if a thing is, it doesn't make any difference whether it ought to be—the correct response is to adjust, to learn to live with the thing.”

Pope Pius XI and “Concelebration”
published 24 July 2015 by Jeff Ostrowski

ONSECRATION OF THE MOST Precious Blood by Pope Pius XI in the Sistine Chapel is shown below. I believe this Mass was combined with the consecration of a bishop—visible on the Epistle side. Can anyone email me information about what precisely is going on here? I am ignorant when it comes to the 1962 Missal consecration of a new bishop. (By the way, since Vatican II, many refer to a bishop’s “ordination” as opposed to his “consecration”—both are acceptable.)
