Prayer to Saint Philip Neri for the Summorum Pontificum Pilgrimage

Prayer composed in 2014 by Fr. Claude Barthe

Good Saint Philip Neri, who didst found the Confraternity of the Most Holy Trinity for the welcome and help of pilgrims to Rome, we place ourselves under thy kind protection.

Assist our pilgrimage in the City that is our Mother and our Mistress. Unite thy prayer to the prayers we send up to the Prince of the Apostles, to whose Tomb we are going. Place us under the mantle of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Salvation of the Roman people. Obtain for us mercy and forgiveness of our sins from Jesus Christ Our Lord, the Divine Spouse of the Church which He established upon Peter. Present to Him, through the hands of the Virgin Mary, our efforts, our labours, our sorrows, and our sacrifices for the celebration of the divine worship.

We beg thee to enlighten our faith, which is exposed to the darkness of the modern world, with thy smile and thy sense of humour.

Lastly we pray thee, good Saint Philip, to support our efforts to make the holy Roman liturgy just as you practised it shine in our parishes, in our nations, and in the whole world for the greater glory of God and for the conversion, consolation, and salvation of innumerable souls.


Prière à saint Philippe Néri pour le pèlerinage Summorum Pontificum

Prière composée par l’abbé Claude Barthe en 2014

Bon saint Philippe Néri, qui avez fondé la confraternité de la Très Sainte Trinité pour l’accueil et l’assistance des pèlerins qui viennent à Rome, nous nous plaçons sous votre bienveillante protection.

Assistez notre pèlerinage dans la Ville Mère et Maîtresse. Unissez votre prière à celles que nous faisons monter vers le Prince des Apôtres, au Tombeau duquel nous nous rendons. Placez-nous sous le manteau de la Bienheureuse Vierge Marie, Salut du Peuple romain. Obtenez-nous de Jésus-Christ, Notre-Seigneur, divin Époux de l’Église dont il a établi le fondement sur Pierre, la miséricorde et le pardon de nos péchés. Présentez-lui par les mains de la Vierge Marie, nos efforts, nos travaux, nos peines et nos sacrifices pour la célébration du culte divin.

Nous vous prions d’éclairer de votre sourire et de votre sens de l’humour notre foi soumise aux ténèbres du monde moderne.

Nous vous prions enfin, ô bon saint Philippe, d’appuyer nos efforts pour faire resplendir dans nos paroisses, dans nos nations et dans le monde entier, la sainte liturgie romaine telle que vous l’avez pratiquée pour la plus grande gloire de Dieu et pour la conversion, la consolation et le salut d’innombrables âmes.

Ainsi soit-il.

An article published by Paix liturgique, February 11, 2017.

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.
