The Rainbow Mafioso in San Fran are soiling their pants right now in fear.

Truly Extraordinary!

This bodes well!

This is the type of reverent Mass that brings you into a deep relationship with God the Creator.

Thank-you EWTN for promoting another TLM on the air. It will help elevate the discussion about Liturgy. More and more Novus Ordo Catholics of good faith desire Tradition.

Glorious! The good Archbishop will need all our prayers in Babaylon by the Bay.

I was there!

It must have been wonderful to be there!

What a blessing that SF has a bishop such a Cordileone, hope he becomes a Cardinal soon.

I loved so much in this video. Could someone explain to me what were all the vestments in the beginning? Have attended a Solemn Mass and many High masses but never seen such elaborate vesting. Liked the sermon with reference to a letter in the Breviary of the day. No readings in the vernacular. The choir was otherworldly. Perhaps from the ICR Personal Parish in Oakland?

The fact that ETWN has shown a Latin Mass again is very important. Hope Cardinal Dolan, archbishops Chaput and Gomez take a hint and follow Cordileone's lead.

We have a great new bishop in Cordileone. Seems that Cardinal Burke is doing his part in Rome.

Deo Gratias.

Summorum Pontificum was issued in 2007. Since that time, Cardinals have felt the need to offer the TLM. The same with archbishops, bishops and priests.

But within the Church, the most prominent person of all, Pope Benedict XVI, the man who issued Summorum Pontificum, has not offered the TLM, at least publicly.

I have found that puzzling.

I pray and hope that His Holiness will offer the TLM.

Thanks to all at Rotate Caeli and the Broadcaster for allowing us to participate at a truly spiritual, uplifting and wonderful occasion. Even being so far away in Scotland I felt as though I was there. How blessed are the people of San Francisco to have such a great Archbishop.
Deo Gratias

Stephen,

As has been noted before in this forum, a number of problems would confront any effort by the Pontiff to offer the TLM. The papal ceremonial for solemn high masses requires the presence of several elements of the papal court and guard which were disbanded half a century ago. Any offering of the TLM would require significant research and a great amount of careful effort to ensure that the ceremony could be modified in a way that would be consistent with tradition while acknowledging the fact that various courtiers, etc., simply don't exist any more. The pope _could_ offer, I suppose, a solemn pontifical high mass but this would not please everyone since some would be upset at the precedent set by the abandonment of the entirety of the papal ceremonial. Thus there is a problem and a need for some careful liturgical development and restoration. The time may simply not be right. Perhaps the Pope doesn't have anyone working for him who is capable of pulling off such a delicate job. Perhaps the Pope doesn't have the _energy_ to offer such a detailed Mass. It has already been said that he offers the low mass in private. The problem is the _public_ Mass.

Speaking of Masses, I am wondering if any of you at Rorate have heard this rumor and what do you think of it?

nms,

This rumor has no basis in reality, it is shameful that someone saw fit to start it.

That is such a shame. Thank you!

If the Church of Rome lacks the ability to offer said Mass, then the liturgical crisis is beyond human repair. Only Heavenly intervention can repair Rome.

KSW/Stephen,

In the past on other blogs I have offered some very simple solutions of my own to these problems concerning Solemn Papal Mass:

1) It is true that the Papal Court no longer exists. However, there are more Cardinals than ever and the Papal Household is in fact larger than the Papal Court. While only some of the titles and positions from the Court are retained in the Household, there are plenty--more than enough--bodies to fill the positions required in the Mass.

To illustrate: if the cardinalatial title of the Curia which used to fill, for example, the position of Cardinal Deacon at Solemn Papal Mass no longer exists, then there really is precisely no problem with having some random Curial cardinal fill it. I am not aware of any situation in which an individual's position in the Court actually coordinated closely with their position at Solemn Papal Mass.

Have Papal Gentlemen be the Sedia bearers in appropriate Renaissance costume or, if simply impossible, in their regular dress.

2) As regards the Palatine and Noble Guards and others, simply have Swiss Guards and maybe even Gendarmes fill their positions. If the uniforms still exist, or if tailors are available, then they could even fill these. Otherwise, they could simply fill in with their regular uniforms, which I really see no problem with.

In other words, adapt, make use of common sense and simply fill in. It is not hard and it is certainly not inauthentic or anything. The Papal Court has changed through the centuries, and even now that things have changed dramatically, in practice this should not preclude having a perfect Solemn Papal Mass with all the same titles present as in the past. Remember, fill in.
