Rorate Caeli

1. It seems a new institute dedicated to the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite has been recognized. The small Oasis de Jesús Sacerdote (Oasis of Jesus Priest), founded in Argentona (Province of Barcelona), Catalonia, Spain, in 1965, with diocesan approval (afterwards, in irregular canonical situation), seems to have been recognized as a Contemplative Community of Pontifical Right, by a document signed by Cardinal Castrillón Hoyos on June 28, 2007. The document is still not available online. (Source: Le Forum Catholique).

Cardinal Castrillón had mentioned the negotiations with the Oasis in his Aparecida address.


2. If you wish to help the work of the Apostolic Administration of Saint John Mary Vianney, in Campos, Brazil, the only Particular Church authorized to use the extraordinary form of the Roman Rite (the Traditional Latin Mass) as its exclusive rite, including the construction of its new seminary, please visit this webpage, which will remain linked in our sidebar (Help Campos).
