Maundy Thursday in UK and Rome

Her Majesty the Queen distributes Maundy Money to OAPs.

For the first time in her reign, this ceremony took place in Northern Ireland.

The Bishop pictured is the head of the Anglican Church of Ireland.

While in Rome the Holy Father looks approvingly at his (old)new staff.

As does Love of your Love..

It is nice to see His Holiness in his office of Bishop of Rome. The Chrism Mass is, for obvious reasons, a very public commitment to his diocese.
