In Italy there have been problems with the implementation of Summorum Pontificum, along the lines of what Msgr. Perl explained at a conference last month in Rome, despite the rosy picture painted by the new Archbishop of Florence and Secretary of the CEI (Italian Bishops Conference).
I picked up from the Papa Ratzinger Blog today news from an article in Il Secolo XIX good news about a TLM celebrated in Sestri Levante, in Liguria in the province of Genoa.
A TLM was offered in the little church San Pietro in Vincoli, in the historic center of Sestri. This was the first TLM there since Summorum Pontificum. There were not so many younger people, as we tend to see in the US and England, but the place was full.
Apparently the group had been rebuffed by various priests. The local bishop designated Fr. Mario Ostigoni, a priest from Chiavari, to say Mass for the people.
Mattone su mattone, amici, mattone su mattone.
We need lots of patience and solidarity in prayer.
Fast and pray for priests, that their hearts will soften and minds open.
