How unutterably sad.

I would like to be enlightened as to what is happening or not happening here? Thanks, D

Bizarre. It looks like something out of those Handel operas in modern settings.

It is the closing of the gates of Castel Gandolfo at the moment 2yrs ago when BXVI left office, the final ceremony.

And it's still night...

The lamps went out all over the world; we shall not see them lit again in our life.

Jon, I hope a certain pope doesn't outlive me!!! God, grant me to see a Benedict XVII.

De profundis clamavi ad te, Domine;
Domine, exaudi vocem meam. Fiant aures tuæ intendentes
in vocem deprecationis meæ.
Si iniquitates observaveris, Domine, Domine, quis sustinebit?
Quia apud te propitiatio est; et propter legem tuam sustinui te, Domine.
Sustinuit anima mea in verbo ejus:
Speravit anima mea in Domino.
A custodia matutina usque ad noctem, speret Israël in Domino.
Quia apud Dominum misericordia, et copiosa apud eum redemptio.
Et ipse redimet Israël ex omnibus iniquitatibus ejus.
