Missa Praelatitia at Rome's Church of Gesù e Maria with His Excellency Athanasius Schneider

For years the ICK have offered the Usus Antiquior every Sunday at this Rome parish of Iesu et Mariae.  For many of us our first experience in Rome of the Extraordinary Form was at this altar.  Many special memories from the 1990s.

This morning Bishop Athanasius Schneider celebrated Low Mass here.  Low Mass of a Bishop in the Gregorian rite is splendid - always two servers and the servers are always ordained. 


  1. When I am in Rome, this is the best place to go for the Traditional Mass. A beautiful church and liturgy. Nothing like it around!

  2. So, is His Excellency wearing the Manteletta because it was in use in 1962 and he is currently in Rome?

    That seems to be the way to bring back the fabulous garments of the past. Say the Traditional Latin Mass!
