Traditional Mass at WYD 2005!
Juventutem, an international organization of youth devoted to the Mass of St. Pius V and in communion with the Bishop of Rome, is making a splash in Cologne at WYD 2005, according to this news story.
Prelates joining Juventutem for events during WYD include two members of the American episcopacy, His Eminence Francis Cardinal George of Chicago and His Excellency Archbishop Raymond Burke of St. Louis.
Of course, the traditional Mass is nothing new for Cardinal George or Archbishop Burke. George has provided for traditional liturgy in his archdiocese through the Society of St. John Cantius and now also through the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, which will open up a beautifully restored parish on Chicago's South Side to serve as their new national headquarters. Burke has also been a friend to the Institute, both while in LaCrosse and now that he is in St. Louis. In fact, he has given the Institute an Oratory church in St. Louis.
Pray that groups like Juventutem, religious communities like the Society of St. John Cantius and the Institute, and solid bishops like George and Burke will help to engender greater concern for the manner in which the Novus Ordo is celebrated, as well.
