Today is the 2-year anniversary of the motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum, going into effect. The motu proprio was published on July 7, 2007, and went into effect on September 14, 2007. I wrote a lengthy reflection on the effect of Summorum Pontificum in light of Archbishop Lefebvre, Pope Benedict XVI, and various priests and bishops. That article was published by me on July 7, 2009.
Read the article in honor of this anniversary.
