October in Rome - important events reminder

If you did not see our earlier posts, here is our reminder of important events in Rome

1. 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. 


2. 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.


3. On October 18, the 25th Anniversary of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter will be celebrated in the FSSP-led Personal Parish in Rome, Trinità dei Pellegrini, by Superior General.
