Rorate Caeli

Priestly meeting in Brazil

Three bishops, including Bishop Fernando Rifan, and almost three dozen priests went to the meeting of priests for the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite last week in the diocese of Garanhuns (Northeastern Brazil - some pictures are available here). Yearly meetings will be held, with the next one scheduled for 2011 in Rio de Janeiro, mentioned in the letter sent by the participants to the Holy Father as as response to the encouraging letter Cardinal Levada had sent them (both letters in Portuguese).
