IT WAS 10 YEARS AGO TONIGHT, ALTHOUGH A STORMY NIGHT, WITH TORNADO WATCHES, AND A FRIDAY, AND AT ST. JOSEPH CHURCH IN MACON, GA, THAT I CELEBRATED MY FIRST EF MASS AS A PRIEST

This is a wonderful anniverary for the Catholic Church through the gracious leadership of Pope Benedict XVI. The Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross was the first day that Summorum Pontificum could be implemented in parishes although the allowance for it was issued on 7/7/07!

While I can't celebrate this form of the Mass today due to other commitments, it is being celebrated in grand fashion on EWTN from the Cathedral in Philadelphia. It is a Pontifical High Mass:

From The New Liturgical Movement

Thursday, September 14, 2017, The Feast of the Exaltation of the Most Holy Cross

Reminder: Pontifical Mass in Philadelphia Today, Live on EWTN


A reminder that EWTN will broadcast live the Pontifical Latin Mass which His Excellency Bishop Joseph Perry will celebrate at the Cathedral Basilica of Ss Peter and Paul in Philadelphia, for the Exaltation of the Holy Cross and the 10th Anniversary of Summorum Pontificum. You can also watch on EWTN’s website: http://ewtn.com/multimedia/live.asp; the Mass begins at 7pm EDT. Sacred music for the Mass will include Mozart’s Missa Brevis in C-major, (the “Sparrow” Mass), Elgar’s Ecce Sacerdos Magnus, Monteverdi’s Adoramus te, Christe, and John Blow’s Salvator Mundi, in addition to the Gregorian chants.
