    Fantastic. I would love to be there. Wonderful basilica too.

  3. Fr. Zuhlsdorf, by any chance, has a little birdy told you that the Instruction on Summorum Pontificum will be released on that day?

  4. Andrew says:

    But who goes to Mass at 3:30 in the afternoon?

  5. MarkJ says:

    It would be a nice touch if, at the end of Mass, the first copies of the Instruction on Summorum Pontificum were handed out…

  6. MJ says:

    Been there! Saw the tomb! Beautiful basilica. St Praxedes is just around the corner, too. Wish I could be there for the TLM!

  7. Hieronymus says:

    This is great news. I am sure St. Pius V is pleased. I’m sure St. Francis is poking him in the ribs a bit, too.

  8. Seraphic Spouse says:

    I went. It was a beautiful Mass. The Franciscan (?) choir was very good. There were perhaps 40 people there.
