While the Ottomans eventually covered the Pantokrator mosaic, it continued to be visible until the 17th century. It was briefly uncovered by the Fossati brothers, who started restoring Hagia Sophia in 1847. This is the crude watercolor made when it was uncovered. pic.twitter.com/uwU1FzPTT9— The Byzantine Legacy (@ByzantineLegacy) May 27, 2021
Jesuit grave-stones in Peking follow a particular pattern established in the Ming dynasty by that of Matteo Ricci. Their design is unique and exclusively used for Jesuit graves: On the left is the Latin text giving the name, nationality, and summary biographical information... 1/ pic.twitter.com/ramF9R9L1K— Incunabula (@incunabula) May 29, 2021

While a well-meaning gesture, blesseds should not be included in the Litany of the Saints except in the particular Churches or religious institutes in whose proper calendars they have been inscribed.

This is Latin centralization? Should a particular Church with a special cult to a person be able to recognize that person in its public liturgy? Roman canon law allows for that this but says it mst be done through an official "legislative" act and not extemporaneously. Even if spontaneity were to be "permitted," should it be up to the discretion of whoever is planning the liturgy, rather the bishop in consultation with the people?
Christ is the uncreated Word of the Father, the eternal Son of God. He is the wisdom of the Father who has become human for our sake. The Holy Spirit is the eternally spirated Love of the Father and the Son who has been sent into the world to sanctify the Church pic.twitter.com/XRMNaqAF76— Thomistic Institute (@ThomisticInst) May 29, 2021

DeVille is an egalitarian with respect to certain levels but he gives no principled reason for this egalitarianism not being applied to holy orders as well. (Perhaps he would just throw up his hands and say something about "unchanging Tradition.) With the way the churches are decaying, it may not be possible for him to find enough men to make parish councils 50% men.
