Summorum Pontificum pilgrimage
The highlight of the international Summorum Pontificum Pilgrimage to Rome was the procession this morning from from San Salvatore in Lauro to St Peter's for solemn Pontifical Mass at the altar of the Chair celebrated by Cardinal Antonio Cañizares Llovera, the Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship.
There were thousands of pilgrims present, and, unusually, the Via della Conciliazione was closed to traffic for the procession. The Remnant Newspaper Facebook page (which you might Like) has many pictures and video clips. Fr Z was there and has some photos which include Fr Andrew Southwell, Mgr Gilles Wach, and Mgr Nicola Bux.
Blackfen parish was represented by one of our families with four young children who travelled to Rome specially for the occasion.
