The mass was celebrated at the base of St. Peter's obelisk. Does anyone recall seeing this done before?

I watched part of the replay on EWTN and after the blessing of the palms near the obelisk, Pope Francis processed while carrying a palm branch to the altar on the sagrato and his throne was near the entrance to St. Peter's Basilica.

Thank you for the clarification. You are correct. I missed it this morning but just finished watching the replay on EWTN. Wishing you a blessed Holy Week.
