FSSP Requiem for John Paul II, Rome, 2005

This is by far the most POD thing I have ever seen.

I love it. I mean, black vestments, suitably mournful skulls and bones, a tiara (!), ad orientem liturgy, incense, massed banks of candles, maniples, a subdeacon, and an enormous and slightly jury-rigged catafaque crammed into Rome's tiniest church? And asking for the repose of the soul of the great John Paul II?

Boys and girls, it doesn't get any more Piously Over-Devotional than this.
