Looking for an Answer

OK folks, help me with my ignorance! During the Vigil Service at WYD Pope Benedict XVI held up a monstrance before the crowd. While holding the monstrance his hands were covered with a shawl for the occasion. I know that is the norm, it is required. However, the deacon who handed him the monstrance picked it up with his bare hands. Why the inconsistency? I am not saying it is wrong, I am saying I don't understand. So, someone out there, talk to me!
Thanks, Carl
