I heard tell that during the upcoming conference for the anniversary of Summorum Pontificum in Rome his Excellency Most Rev. Raymond Burke, Prefect of the Segnatura, will be celebrant for a Pontifical Mass in the older, traditional Roman Rite in… wait for it…

the Vatican Basilica of St. Peter!

It was unclear if the Mass was to be in the Chapel of the Blessed Sacrament or in the transept where the Blessed Sacrament is reserved, at the tomb of the Apostles Simon and Jude.

I suppose it is a very long time since something like this has taken place in the Vatican Basilica.

May it be a sign of the times!
