Extraordinary Form "Going's On..."

Some remarkable news from the Eternal City: a Mass in the Extraordinary Form was celebrated in the Vatican Basilica this past Sunday by Archbishop Burke, prefect of the Apostolic Signatura. The Mass took place in the Eucharistic chapel of the Basilica. A brief video of this Mass was posted on YouTube:

Tomorrow morning I'm flying home for the weekend. Archbishop Kurtz will be making a pastoral visit to the Latin Mass community at St. Martin's in Louisville. He will be attending in choir at the 12:30 Mass on Sunday. I'll be posting something early next week, be sure.

On a related (liturgical) topic, this afternoon is the annual McManus Lecture, sponsored by the School of Canon Law. The speaker this year is Bishop Trautman of Erie, speaking on the new translation of the Roman Missal. This one ought to be interesting...
