Pope Benedict XVI

I liked Fr Brown,s post over at Forest Murmurs concerning the resignation of Pope Benedict.  There is a video showing 3mins and 42secs of applause.  Incidentally Bishop Roche features quite promently.

Although this is a very impressive declaration of affection for our Pope, Fr Brown quotes from Spirit of the Liturgy where Benedict suggests that applause reduces liturgy to a kind of religious entertainment.  I am glad that Benedict got so much applause, but it would have been better if it was not during Mass.
