The head should be uncovered in the presence of the Most Blessed Sacrament.  

Susme, even the Pope removes his skull cap during the procession and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament!

Is he higher than the Pope?

This rubric is so basic, even the laity knows that the head of men should be uncovered, even when entering the church.

It is so basic that even by just observing the Mass of a bishop, you will notice that they remove their skull caps by the end of the Prayer over the Gifts.

Another word for skull cap is solideo.  Soli  is only, and Deo is God.  This means that the bishop removes this head piece only in the presence of God.

Eh ano yang naka-biretta sa Eucharistic Procession.

Naturingang Defender of the Faith eh basic liturgy and theology, kulang.  Gaya nga ng kasabihan. Lex Orandi, Lex Credendi, Lex Vivendi.

Kaya pala walang galang sa ibang tao kasi walang galang mismo sa Diyos.
