Pontifical Mass of Bishop Oliveri

Rorate Caeli has some good photographs of the Pontifical Mass recently celebrated by Bishop Mario Oliveri of Albenga-Imperia at the parish Church of St Michael the Archangel in Villatalla. What a lovely Church for a village of only 30 inhabitants!

I met Bishop Oliveri back in the late 1970s when he was an official at the Apostolic Nunciature in London. He came to give a lecture at the Faith Summer Session and was very warmly received. I have always taken an interest in news about him and it is no surprise to hear that his diocese is one of the few in Italy where there have been no obstacles imposed to the implementation of Summorum Pontificum.
