“Desirous of fulfilling the pastoral needs of those who seek the celebration of the Sacred Liturgy according to the rite of the 1962 Roman Missal, I will celebrate Holy Mass in this extraordinary form on the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, August 15, 2007, at Saint Joseph’s Co-Cathedral at 7:00pm …”
Is this not incredible? The ancient Mass returning to the cathedrals. Catholic bishops leading the way. Who even dared to dream of such a thing in years past? Expect to see more stories like this. Bishops and priests can now lead with confidence, knowing that the Holy Father stands squarely behind them. There is something “in the air” with this pontificate. Tradition is beginning to breathe freely again, without fear of reprisals.
