So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

2014 Vatican Christmas Late Night Liturgy/play-byplay: Marini tackles Pontiff during Incensation

Monsignor Guido Marini: steering popes in the right direction since October 1, 2007.

"Incensation Destination"

Images from CTV Midnight Mass video:

16:35 — Still on course. Deacon fakes turn. Then... .

... parting of ways. Marini glance confirms penalty by Pontiff.

Pontiff dekes left: "Catch me if you can!"

Marini closes the distance: "Not so fast!"

"Gotcha."

Marini sotto voce: "Santissimo Padre,... the Blessed Virgin Mother."

Course correction. Thumbs up from Msgr. Marini.



Good thing this was touch (football) not tackle.

Merry Christmas to Msgr. Guidio Marini, Team Vatican and all Masters of Ceremonies!
