“I should not like to be too harsh on this commission’s labors. It numbered a certain number of genuine scholars and more than one experienced and judicious pastor. Under different circumstances, they might have accomplished excellent work. Unfortunately, on the one hand, a deadly error in judgment placed the official leadership of this committee in the hands of a man who—though generous and brave—was not very knowledgeable: Cardinal Larcaro. He was utterly incapable of resisting the maneuvers of the mealy-mouthed scoundrel that the Neapolitan Vincentian, Annibale, a man as bereft of culture as he was of basic honesty, soon revealed himself to be.”
— Fr. Bouyer, a liturgical expert appointed by Pope Paul VI

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.)
