Gregorius Magnus


Readers may remember that some months ago, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith sent a questionaire to all the bishops of the world seeking information on the implementation of Summorum Pontificum in their dioceses.  There is no official news on the outcome of this survey, although the rumour is that the level of hostility amongst the bishops of the world  has turned out to be less than many people expected.  

Although the questionaire was intended to be sectet, the text of it was leaked, and the International Federation, Una Voce, decided to conduct its own survey via its members throughout the world.  Reports were gathered from 368 dioceses in 56 countries and consolidated into a single document.  This document has now been published in the magazine Gregorius Magnus, which can be read over the internet.  It makes interesting reading.
