Summorum Pontificum at 9

Pray for Benedict XVI, and for the preservation and increase of the Traditional Mass on this 9th anniversary of Summorum Pontificum. Its legacy is more under threat now than you might imagine.

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,

that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection,
implored your help, or sought your intercession,
was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence,
I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother.
To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful.
O Mother of the Word Incarnate,
despise not my petitions,
but in your mercy, hear and answer me.
