Excerpt: A parishioner from a small town north of New York City has started an online petition with a simple, respectful request to his Cardinal-Archbishop: “Please offer this year's Christmas Midnight Mass in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.”Fr Z. on Norms on the Motu Proprio imposed on priests by the Bp. of San Diego
"Pope Benedict's release of the motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum, was possibly the most significant event of his pontificate, yet many millions of Catholics have no idea this paradigm-shattering document even exists," stated Patrick McGrath, who has lived most of his life in and near Stony Point, New York.
"Then I thought that my own Archbishop, Edward Cardinal Egan, has it within his power to take the Extraordinary Form from out of the shadows and in front of the Klieg lights, quite literally."
