Personal Parish for the Traditional Mass in Rome
A hat tip to the blog Rorate Caeli which posted this fascinating story:
From the website of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP) in Melbourne:Please check the link to read the fascinating comments on "personal parishes" being established to celebrate the TLM.
Personal Parish for the Extraordinary Form to be established in Rome: the traditional Mass apostolate in Rome under Fr Joseph Kramer is to be elevated into a personal parish, with Fr Kramer as its first parish priest. The apostolate will move early in 2008 into a larger Church, which will be given for the exclusive use of the new Parish: the Church of Trinita dei Pellegrini. We are told that the Holy Father wishes this model to be “an exemplar for the whole Church” [emphasis mine]. We thank God for this development, rejoice in the Holy Father’s leadership, and congratulate Fr Kramer and his community.Congratulations to Father Kramer and the Traditional Mass congregation in tiny Muratori.
