Sacred Heart Elevated To Basilica - GABULL

David Castronovo puts the tintinnabulum in its rightful place on the altar. The tintinnabulum, a bell on a pole, signifies the church's link with the Pope. It's one of two symbols on display at a basilica. The other is the ombrellino, an elaborate umbrella always displayed halfway open to signify the church is ready to welcome the Holy Father.
