Ladies and Gentlemen,
You will doubtless have been following the latest news of the negotiations between the Holy See and the Society of St Pius X on a reconciliation of the latter. It is now seems pretty evident that there is much good will on both sides of the negotiations for a successful outcome, notwithstanding evidence of some division within the SSPX over the matter. We note that the SSPX have asked their supporters to offer a Novena requesting the necessary graces for the Holy Father and Bishop Fellay (Superior of the SSPX) in this matter from 8 May until the Vigil of the Ascension (17 May).
The LMS is asking all people of good will to offer up a similar Novena for the success of the current negotiations. The Novena should start on Friday, 18 May and conclude on the Vigil of Pentecost (Saturday, 26 May). Please pray the prayers Veni Creator Spiritus followed by the Memorare. These can be found (in Latin and English) on the LMS website here:
