The Third Conference on the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum

This coming Friday May 13th  sees the inauguration of a major congress on the Motu Proprio, hosted by the Angelicum in Rome. The congress is organised by The Association Youth and Tradition And the Sodality Priestly  Friends of Summorurum Pontificum.


This congress could not be more different from the one given by the Pontifical Liturgical Institute and shows how the Old Rite Mass is now, once more, becoming part of mainstream Catholic life. I offer below the full programme, both in Italian and English. Please attend if you can!
