JPII Smackdown of Old Marini

During the reign of John Paul II, the official Papal liturgist was a certain Mgr. Marini, who was a Suspect of the First Order to anyone who actually read rubrics...

At any rate, here's an interesting story.

I recall an episode when Old Marini told John Paul the Great that he should be standing and JP2 replied 'The Pope is kneeling'!


That's about as close as a Pope gets to saying "Shut up!"
