Tradition to Kick-off Year of Faith in Rome:

Other Senior Prelates to Take Part in Traditional Masses During Upcoming Pilgrimage to Rome

By Alberto Carosa POSTED: 10/22/12
Rome Correspondent  

ROME: The announcement that Cardinal Antonio Cañizares Llovera would celebrate the pontifical in the extraordinary rite in St. Peter's on Nov. 3, on the final day of the Una Cum Papa Nostro traditionalist pilgrimage to Rome (1-3 November 2012) promoted by CISP (Coetus Internationalis Summorum Pontificum), came at  the same time of the release of the final programme for that day. In much the same way, with the release of the final programme for the other two days of the pilgrimage came the news that at least other two senior prelates will be involved in the celebration of collateral rites in the extraordinary form: Cardinal Walter Brandmüller, who was President of the Pontifical Committee for Historical Sciences from 13 June 1998 until 3 December 2009, and Msgr. Giuseppe Sciacca, secretary of the Vatican Governorate.

The 1-2 November celebrations were recommended by Fr Claude Barthe, the official chaplain of the pilgrimage, who invited each participant group to organize a prayer meeting or a celebration at least the day before November  3rd.

More in detail, Cardinal Walter Brandmüller will celebrate a pontifical “Omnium Sanctorum” on Thursday, November 1st, All Saints Day, at 10:30 am at the Church of Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini, Via dei Pettinari 36/A, on the margins of Trastevere area, the heart of ancient-medieval Rome. For those who are not aware, this church was erected as personal parish, assigned and reserved by the Pope to Rome’s traditional community and is presently under the responsibility of the Fraternity of St. Peter. And again, for those who are not aware, Cardinal Canizares won’t be the first to celebrate a pontifical at the Chair in St. Peter’s: the very Cardinal Brandmüller was the celebrant of an old rite pontifical there on May 17th, 2011, at the conclusion of a symposium on the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum held in Rome the previous days.

On Friday, November 2, a pontifical Mass of requiem Pro Omnibus Defunctis (All Souls' Day) will be celebrated by Msgr. Giuseppe Sciacca, secretary of the Vatican Governorate, again in the church of Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini  at 6:30 pm.

But there will also other religious services in Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini those days, which include vespers and other regular masses in the extraordinary rite.

For its part, also FIUV - Una Voce (Foederatio Internationalis Una Voce) has arranged its own devotional programme for the two days preceding the conclusive events on November 3rd.

As aptly pointed out in the FIUV website, “to help the pilgrims during their stay in Rome our FIUV Secretary, Thomas Murphy, has arranged additional services for Thursday (1st) and Friday (2nd)”.

Thursday, November 1st , a mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite will be offered at 11.00 am at the Church of Sant'Agata dei Goti, Via Mazzarino 16, adjacent to Via Nazionale and Mercati Traianei.  Fr. John Hunwicke will be the celebrant  and  preacher. He will also lead the other traditional evening devotions for the day, including the Holy Rosary and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament , scheduled to take place at 3.30 pm at Basilica of Santissimi XII Apostoli, Piazza Santi Apostoli 51, at the end of Via del Corso on the left hand side, with Piazza Venezia on your right hand side.

The following day, Friday, 2nd November, with the same celebrant and preacher, the mass will be celebrated at the same church, Sant'Agata dei Goti, but at a different time, 11:00 am. The church will not change for the evening devotions, again the Holy Rosary and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament: they will take place at Sant'Agata dei Goti, where the pilgrims will have to come back at 5 pm.
