New Liturgical Movement: Guest Article: Taking Summorum Pontificum Out of the Trenches

New Liturgical Movement: Guest Article: Taking Summorum Pontificum Out of the Trenches



Here's an interesting article that may inspire many of us to attend the Extraordinary Form Mass locally. Click on link above to read the whole article.



Here we are, eight years after Pope Benedict XVI’s motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum, came into effect. This is an extraordinary day, both for those who endured long years without the clarity that Summorum provides,
as well as for younger Catholics (like those in Juventutem DC) who grew
up after Vatican II and were — to the surprise of many — drawn to
tradition. So where are we eight years after Summorum took effect?



For context, let’s reflect on some typical comments Juventutem DC has heard.



1. “At our parish, we have had an Indult for nearly 20 years!”



2. Summorum Pontificum has been around for years, but my bishop/diocese/pastor won’t implement it.”



3. “If only the FSSP would be given a parish here, everything would be better.”
