Francis turns towards God

In a Paul VI mass celebrated on the tomb of John Paul II this Thursday, the Pope celebrated versus Deum, apparently for the first time in this pontificate. 

(Tip: Fratres in unum; Source: Radio Vaticana) Fratres in unum (in Portuguese) adds that he did so because he had no other choice, but we tend to disagree: a makeshift versus populum table could have been easily arranged if the Pope had asked for one. Obviously, we do not believe that it is a sign of anything greater, though, but a mere curiosity.
