October 22-25, 2015: Pilgrims of Summorum Pontificum to Rome for the Synod on the Family


Flyer pilgrimage #sumpont2015The fourth annual pilgrimage to Rome for supporters of Summorum Pontificum will take place Thursday, the 22nd of October through Sunday, the 25th of October, 2015. The pilgrimage will begin, as in every year, with Pontifical Vespers in the Personal Parish Church of SS Trinità dei Pellegrini and will conclude with the celebration in the same church of the feast of Christ the King, on Sunday the 25th of October.

This year the pilgrimage will coincide with the closing of the Synod on the Family and so the prayer of the pilgrims will be offered, in a particular way, for that the Church will once again find home for our “little domestic churches” (Familiaris Consortio, 51) under the protection and guide of the Holy Family of Nazareth, model of conjugal life, of education and sanctification, so that new generations of catholic families might be the leaven of the new evangelization.

Saturday the 24th of October, the pilgrimage will arrive at its culmination with the solemn procession towards St Peters and the celebration, at 12 Noon, in the Vatican Basilica of Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. The CISP would like to warmly thank His Eminence Cardinal Comasti, Archpriest of St Peters for the generous solicitude with which he agreed, far in advance, to the date and time of the celebration of the Mass.


To improve the preparation for the pilgrimage, the CISP has decided to enrich its team, even establishing a musical coordinator, a press officer and national delegates.  Continue reading

Cardinal Burke to offer Pontifical High Mass in Saint Peter’s Basilica

Burke - Summorum Pontificum - October 25, 2014 - St Peter's Basilica

His Eminence Raymond L. Cardinal Burke with Missionaries of Charity.

2 FEBRUARY 2014,

The Cœtus Internationalis Summorum Pontificum is happy to announce that His Eminence Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, will celebrate the Solemn Pontifical High Mass according to the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, on Saturday, October 25, in Saint Peter’s Basilica, at 12:00 Noon, on the occasion of the Third Summorum Pontificum Pilgrimage to Rome.

The CISP would like to thank His Eminence Angelo Cardinal Comastri, Archpriest of Saint Peter’s Basilica, for responding so quickly to our request and making possible the celebration of the Holy Mass, the culmination of our pilgrimage ad Petri Sedem.

We can therefore begin to organize the pilgrimage, already now, eight months in advance, making it easier for pilgrims from Europe and from abroad to plan to participate in the pilgrimage to Rome. Thanks to the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum of H.H. Pope Benedict XVI of 7 July 2007, the riches of the Extraordinary Form are becoming more and more accessible to the Universal Church (Instruction Universæ Ecclesiæ, 30 April 2011), and people from all parts of the world are able to gather in pilgrimage for solemn prayer and for offering a witness to the faith.

We remind all that the Pilgrimage will begin on Thursday, October 23, and will conclude on the Feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King, on Sunday October 26, 2014.
