Rorate Caeli

Ever forward

Today we enter the 14th year of the era of Summorum Pontificum. Things concerning the traditional Mass have developed to varying degrees over the years - some not quite meeting our expectations, yet others exceeding them. To that end, we are asking readers - as we have in the past - to take this occasion to update Mass information on the Wikimissa site. For those unfamiliar with it, Wikimissa is an international directory of Traditional Latin Masses that was designed some years ago by a resourceful traditional Catholic in France. It has proven to be an invaluable tool for travelers, but it is also quite helpful to those just discovering and seeking out the TLM where they live. Wikimissa was in a state of neglect for several years but has recently been revitalized by some enterprising individuals who recognized its value to the worldwide TLM community. Much of the information has not been updated for some time. For that reason, we are asking everyone to consult the site for the Masses that you attend or that you know of in your area. Although the site is largely presented in French, the information for Mass times and places is easily discernible and directions for making edits can be found in English (and seven other languages) on the home page When you make an edit, please remember to include current phone numbers and links to websites where applicable. This is of great help to those who are far away from home and need to verify dates and times for Mass.

In times like the present, the traditional Mass stands to make great strides among the Faithful. Let’s do our part to help bring them to it.
