Vatican City, February 22 - Pope Benedict XVI has
made changes to the rites performed at the beginning of a
pontificate, Vatican daily L'Osservatore Romano reported Friday.
The changes pertain to two ceremonies: the celebration of
the start of the ministry of the Bishop of Rome, and the
celebration of the enthronement at the basilica of St John
Lateran in Rome.
Both rites, in which all cardinals present in Rome will
participate, shall now be performed before the holy mass.
The changes were finalized during a papal audience with
Father Guido Marini, master of pontifical liturgical
celebrations, on Monday, the daily said.
Furthermore the new pope will no longer be required to
immediately visit the two papal basilicas of Saint Paul outside
the Walls and Saint Mary Major, but "when he finds it most
opportune" to do so, said Marini.
The change of the rules was one of the final acts of
Benedict before formally stepping down next Thursday.
The conclave to elect his successor is expected to commence
by mid-March.
