Cardinal assures Una Voce that Pope won't touch Traditional Mass status

The General Assembly of the International Una Voce Federation (FIUV) was held in Rome in the past few days - and they got an uplifting visit from Cardinal Castrill√≥n:  The former prefect of the Congregation for the Clergy has told a traditionalist group that Pope Francis has no intention of restricting access to the Extraordinary Form of the Latin liturgy.  “I met Pope Francis very recently and he told me that he has no problem with the old rite, and neither does he have any problem with lay groups and associations like yours that promote it,” Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos told members of Una Voce International (FIUV), who were in Rome for a general assembly.  (Read more at Rorate Caeli...)

Knights of Columbus Memorial Mass

Knights of Columbus Memorial Mass
The Latin Mass Choir of St. Mary Magdalen was invited to sing at the Adolfo Camarillo Council (#5272) Knights of Columbus Memorial Mass in honor of their deceased Council members. Each year in November, the month dedicated to All Souls, the Knights remember their brothers in a requiem Mass.  Father Preston Passos, using the original high altar, sung the Ordinary Form of the Mass, ad orientem in Latin. During Mass, the names of 156 members were solemnly read (view list).  Among them was Mathias A. Raab, Jr., founding member of Ventura County Life Centers.  So it was quite an honor for his son, granddaughter & grandson-in-law to be singing at this Mass!
