I always wondered while looking on old Papal Functions why things just looked more “mystical” or just had a strange ambience lacking in the modern functions. (Besides the obvious changes in Liturgy, Vestments, etc). Well, then I saw two pics I had saved, and noticed the change in lighting. Compare the 2 below pics of St. Peter’s. Notice the difference in lighting, the old pic (on top) has the chandeliers stringed together. The new pic (on bottom) has no chandeliers.
