Upcoming events in Rome

1. On the evening of September 30, Bishop Athanasius Schneider will give a conference at the seat of the Fondazione Lepanto (headed by Roberto de Mattei) at Piazza Santa Balbina 8. The theme will be Corpus Christi. Holy Communion and the Renewal of the Church, which is also the title of his newest book, published by Libreria Editrice Vaticana only last month.

This is the same day as the ordinary public consistory for the canonization of Blessed Popes John XXIII and John Paul II. 



2. On October 10, Giovani e Tradizione will present the "Acts" of the 3rd Conference on Summorum Pontificum, which took place on May 13 - 15, 2011.

The 2011 Conference was held in the Angelicum and culminated in a Solemn Pontifical Mass at the Altar of the Throne in St. Peter's Basilica, offered by Walter Cardinal Brandmüller. It was probably the most glorious of the liturgical and theological conferences oriented towards Traditional Catholicism that took place in Rome during the reign of Benedict XVI. (The list of speakers, liturgies and talks at this Conference can still be read here, although in the end it was not Cardinal Canizares Llovera who offered the Mass.)

  Acts of the Conference
The Acts will be presented at the Angelicum with greetings and an introduction by Fr. Vincenzo Nuara OP of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, and with interventions by Sandro Magister, Giovanni Turco, and Raymond Cardinal Burke. 

On the afternoon of the next day, October 11, Cardinal Burke will celebrate a Solemn Pontifical Mass at the Basilica di San Clemente in Rome. 


3. On October 12, at the closing of the second Giornate Sacerdotali Romane organized by the Amicizia Sacerdotale Summorum Pontificum, a Solemn Mass will be offered at the eight in the morning at the Altar of St. Pius X in St. Peter's Basilica.


4. The second international pilgrimage of Traditional Catholics to Rome to be organized by the "Coetus Internationalis Summorum Pontificum" will take place this October. The first had taken place in November last year
