The feast day of St. Pius V is coming up on April 30th. I wounder if Benedict will liberize the Tridentine Mass then?
Are there any special liturgical things we can do in a parish for the 1st
anniversary of the election of the Pope?
Since we are in the Octave of Easter, are we allowed to use the prayers for the
Pope on the Anniversary of his election, or does the Octave trump that?
Wouldn’t it be a great Easter gift to announce an indult on the Pope’s anniversary?
I think the Octave of Easter pretty much supresses everything else.
And I do think the anniversary would be wonderful opportunity.
But St Pius V Day on the old calendar is May 5…
Would there be a significance to this choice (versus the new calendar)?
Personally, think there are more auspicious days.
National Bishop’s Conferences throughout the world have been asked by His Eminence Cardinal Sodano, the Secretary of State, to celebrate the Election of Pope Benedict XVI either on the actual anniversary date (19th April) each year or, because Conferences may feel that this coincides too closely with the celebration of Easter, on the Feast of St Peter and St Paul (29th June). The Bishops Conference of England and Wales has agreed that the celebration of the Election of the Holy Father each year shall be kept on the 29th June.
The waiting only continues. It does not begin.
