Summorum Pontificum

I have recently returned from the Summorum Pontificum Pilgrimage to Rome.  Although I travelled by myself, I was able to join about 2000 other pilgrims from all parts of the world for Mass in St Peter's Basilica last Saturday.

For me the pilgrimage started on the Thursday evening with Mass in the church of Santa Maria supra Minerva where Mgr Wach of the Institute of Christ the King was the celebrant and preacher.  I was not able to attend the the Way of the Cross on the Friday as it would have involved too much walking, so instead, I took the Metro to the basilica of San Giovanni and was able to join a guided tour.

I did, however, join the procession on the Saturday from the Chiesa Nuova to St Peter's.  In the afternoon, I visited the basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore.  On Sunday, I was able to attend Mass at the church belonging to the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter.  This was a Solemn Mass in the Dominican Rite, which was a new experience for me.
