On 19 January 2017, the Cœtus Internationalis Summorum Pontificum (CISP) held a press conference in Paris to present the main details of the festivities to be organized in September to mark the tenth anniversary of the Motu Proprio of Pope Benedict XVI dated 7 July 2007, the apostolic letter Summorum Pontificum, which entered into force on 14 September 2007.
The main characteristic of this anniversary is its official character: Archbishop Guido Pozzo, secretary of the Ecclesia Dei Commission, has written to all the superiors of Ecclesia Dei institutes and communities, male and female, inviting them to participate.
At the press conference, it was confirmed that, on Thursday, 14 September 2017, there will be a colloquium on the tenth anniversary of the motu proprio at the Pontifical University of Angelicum, during which Archbishop Pozzo, among others (their names will be communicated over the coming months), will take stock of these ten years of renewal of the traditional liturgy in the Church. This colloquium will be led by the Dominican Father Vincenzo Nuara of the Ecclesia Dei Commission and organized by the Amicizia Sacerdotale Summorum Pontificum and the association Giovani e Tradizione. It will be a perfect kick off for the sixth international pilgrimage of Populus Summorum Pontificum, that will be reinforced this year by the presence of the Ecclesia Dei institutes and communities.
