Today, 14th September, is the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, a feasst day that appeals greatly to me, because of the importance of the Holy Cross to the whole concept of Christianity. It also appeals to me, because it is the anniversary of the coming into force, four years ago, of the Holy Father's motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum.
Today is also of special significance to the traditional movement within the Church, because an important meeting is taking place between Bishop Fellay of the SSPX and Cardinal Lavada of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. There is speculation amongst some journalists and Vatican watchers that this meeting could be the start of the resolution of the differences between the SSPX and the Magisterium of the Church. Let us hope that this is the case.
