Latin Mass to be Celebrated at Lourdes

Classical Use to have prominent place at August 15th French "National Pilgrimage" in Lourdes

posted by Shawn Tribe

In France, some good news has come forward about the continuing de-marginalization of the classical use of the Roman rite.

The classical use will now be fully celebrated in the main sanctuaries of Lourdes on the most important French pilgrimage, "The National Pilgrimage" on the 15th of August:

“In full agreement with Msgr. Perrier, Bishop of Tarbes and Lourdes and with Msgr. Zambelli, rector, masses according to the “extraordinary form” of the Roman Missal, the Missal of Blessed John XXIII, will be celebrated each day in the sanctuaries of Lourdes by chaplains and priests of Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter..." (From a statement by Fr. Pozzetto)

There are a few different Mass times and locations listed, including a sung mass in the higher basilica of the Immaculate Conception by Fr. Pozzetto, a low Mass in the same location by a priest of the FSSP, as well as a sung Mass in the crypt.

Anyone who think they will attend and can help by singing or serving at the Mass, do contact:

Abbé François Pozzetto
