    ... intend to participate in the mass celebration, they had a few minutes to kindly find their way to an exit.

    We had presumed the first two rows were reserved for visiting clergy, or perhaps for the people who pulled the ropes to swing the Botafumiero (although we did not know if we would see it today).
