Florence

Midnight Mass celebrated on Solemnity of the Nativity of the Lord by Fr. Gilles Wach, Prior General of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, in the presence of His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke in the Florentine church of Saints Michael and Cajetan. The prelate is visible in the center of the photo, kneeling in a pluvial in front of the altar, surrounded by two assistants to the throne in choir dress. A little to the right of him one can see the subdeacon, who, in accordance with the norms of the coram episcopo mass, does not usually kneel in the middle, but slightly to the side [photo courtesy of ICRSS].
