Fact: "What earlier generations held as sacred, remains sacred and great for us too"

Those wonderful words we remember in the Holy Father's Explanatory letter to Summorum Pontificum as we celebrate the 3rd anniversary, the important "reporting year" on the status of the Summorum Pontificum.

How can it be seen as anything other than a complete success.... think of how many of the faithful have since assisted at a Mass in the Extraordinary form? Think the the explosion of the various schola cantorum that have been formed to support those Masses, and whose recovery and use of Gregorian chant has seeped into the Ordinary form of the Mass as well.

Let us pray for His Holiness (ad multos annos) and for all the wonderful priests, servers, and scholae that make it all possible.

Introibo ad altare Dei...
