"Nothing should be allowed that is unworthy of divine worship, nothing that is obviously profane or unfit to express the inner, sacred power of prayer. Nothing odd or unusual is allowable, since such things, far from fostering devotion in the praying community, rather shock and upset it—and impede the proper and rightful cultivation of a devotion faithful to tradition."
— Pope Paul VI • 10/13/1966

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.)
