Cardinal Rivera celebrates Traditional Mass in Mexico City on Feast of St. Peter with the FSSP

Cardinal Rivera, Archbishop of Mexico City, celebrated the Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul in the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception (administered by the Fraternity of St. Peter - chaplain Fr. Kenneth Fryar), with a Traditional Mass. It was Cardinal Rivera's first public Traditional Mass since the introduction of the Novus Ordo in 1969/1970.

The official news service of the Archdiocese adds the following:

[D]uring the Mass, two great relicaries were exposed to the veneration of the faithful, with first class relics of Saint Cristóbal Magallanes and his 24 martyr companions of the Cristero War, as well as 13 lay martyrs of the same period of history, group headed by Anacleto González Flores, who were beatified during the pontificate of Benedict XVI.

The two great relicaries belong to the Archdiocese of Guadalajara, in Jalisco, but were brought to Mexico [City] exceptionally in the celebrations for the 50 years of priestly life of Cardinal Norberto Rivera Carrera, Primate Archbishop of Mexico.
