  1. Glad to see Rev. Fr. and not that silly "Canon" title being used for the Institute MC.

  2. Looking forward to it!

  3. Look forward to this conference and especially the Mass at the altar of the Cathedra Petri. This will be a historic moment for the Church in Rome. Just such a shame the altar is not as it was!!! Nevertheless Deo Gratias and I hope as many people as possible attend to show their solidarity to the wishes of our Pontifex Maximus Benedictus.

    Thanks for posting the info!!!!
