FYI: Sung Pontifical Mass October 8 in Rome...

Always good news coming from the wonderful SODALITIVM INTERNATIONALE PASTOR ANGELICVS (SIPA):

SIPA has just announced that Solemn Pontifical High Mass according to the 1962 Missale Romanum will be sung by His Eminence Darío Card. Castrillón Hoyos in the Borghese Chapel of the Patriarchal Basilica of Saint Mary Major this coming October 8 at eleven o'clock. This Mass is being celebrated to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the passing of the Servant of God Pius XII, of blessed and happy memory.

The Mass will be hosted by SIPA with the liturgical assistance of the F.S.S.P. in Urbe. All are welcome. Please plan to come early. Invitations have gone out and it's expected that members of the Pacelli family as well as other former friends, nobles and prelates will be present that were dear to the heart of Pius XII.

Special thanks to Mr. Rodolfo Vargas Rubio for his outstanding leadership in his capacity as the founding president of SIPA.

All this commemoration of the great Pope Pius XII, who truely deserves the title of Venerable Pope Pius XII (the Great), is wonderful.

I do hope that the Mass celebrated by Cardinal Castrillon will be available of DVD at some point.

I also hope that the Mass at St. Peter's Basilica, commemorating Pope Pius XII will be telivised live by EWTN, or a DVD made of that as well.

I wish I could be there.

JP, if he will be so kind, will have to represent those of us in partibus infidelium.
