On Saturday and Sunday, September 29th & 30th, we were blessed with an animated public lecture and practical demonstration of principles by the Bishop Peter Elliott on the Liturgical Reforms Envisioned by Benedict XVI, at Saint Mary of Victories Church.
Credo members have been interested in “good liturgy” for many years; we have a number of enthusiasts of what is now called the Extraordinary Form of the Liturgy, and Board Member Fred Haehnel is the president of the local Una Voce chapter. Advisory Board member James Hitchcock is one of the founders of the Latin Liturgy Association, which promotes and fosters the use of Latin, and his wife Helen publishes the very fine Adormeus Bulletin, recommended by Bishop Elliott.
The complete text of the heavily-footnoted lecture is available by clicking here.
