New Traditional Institute Created by the Vatican!

Today, the 8th of September, the Vatican created a religious institute of pontifical right (The Institute "Good Shepherd"), to accommodate 5 priests who had been expelled from the SSPX (such as Fr. Laguérie) and a few seminarians.

Of more general importance, is that, according to the piece, the Holy Father wishes to establish that the Traditional Missal is not a separate missal, but as a mere variation of the Roman Rite.

This is so exciting for me! I will definitely keep an eye on this since I am a so strongly connected to the Tridentine Rite. I love the Tridentine Latin Mass!

Very, very interesting development, to say the least. I can't wait for Pope Benedict's apostolic letter on liturgy which is supposed to come in October.

Best, Argent

Thank you for this news. Please keep these priests and seminarians in our prayers.
Much as I love and venerate the Traditional liturgy, and much as I hope that the Supreme Pontiff would comment on it in an encyclical or an apostolic letter, I don't feel like guessing what the Pope would say in the coming document. Even finally he won't give us what we'd expect, we should be humble enough to receive it graciously.
