1. The International Federation Una Voce held its XIX General Assembly in Rome on 14/15 November. Since the promulgation of Summorum Pontificum the pace of interest in the work of the Federation has increased quite noticeably. This year FIUV enrolled six new members; with most interest coming from Latin America. The Federation posted a report on its website.

    And I predict Cuban will be one of the next. I would urge others to keep Cuba in your prayers. There is interest in the old Mass among the young.

    Please pray for Sweden, as we still await the full implementation of the motu proprio in our diocese. We would very much like to have a presence of a traditional congregation in our country, such as the FSSP. Can anyone advise on how this could be achieved?

    Today, thanks to the dedication of the FSSPX and some courageous diocesan priests and religious we can have the mass regularly, almost every Sunday.

    The diocese has consented to offer the mass but it does not seem to be wholeheartedly, since our bishop has not once attended one of the regular masses offered under his authority.

    I have heard that a FSSP priest regularly visits Finland. If you have contacts in Finland perhaps you could find out more about him and whether he would be willing to come to Sweden for a visit.
