Photographer's Note

While visiting the Milan Cathedral (il Duomo), I had the luck to see a religious ceremony not so frequent, probably an ordination.

Ordination is one of the seven sacraments of Catholicism. The term "ordination" comes from the Latin "ordinatio", meaning "bringing into order" or "action to organize the distribution of burdens." After the ceremony, the ordaining person becomes a priest, or a deacon.

The other six sacraments are baptism, confirmation, eucharist, penance, marriage and anointing of the sick.

Photo taken at arms length, a chance that it is not too blurry!
