The International Juventutem Federation is pleased to announce that His Eminence George Cardinal Pell, Prefect of the Secretariat for Economy, has kindly accepted our invitation to be the Celebrant at a Pontifical Solemn High Mass according to the Missal of St John XXIII on Friday 24 October 2014, 6:30pm, at Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini, Parish Church of the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter in Rome, Italy. The Holy Sacrifice will be offered in thanksgiving for the tenth anniversary of Juventutem, the worldwide youth movement fostering the sanctification of the young through the Roman traditions of Holy Mother Church. We are grateful to His Eminence who generously presided at Solemn Pontifical Vespers organised by Juventutem during World Youth Days in the past, first in Düsseldorf on 17 August 2005, and again in Sydney on 16 July 2008.
After Vespers in Düsseldorf, Cardinal Pell gave the following encouragements to the young WYD pilgrims of Juventutem: “I am happy to be here because the old Latin rite is one of the most beautiful things in the entire Western civilization. And I am very glad that this ancient rite has its place in the Church today. I am happy because this rite helps you to love God and to love one another. In this ancient rite we always see that our prayer is an act of worship. It is impossible to see a celebration like these Vespers as something horizontal. We have one Church only, whose Head is the Successor of Peter, with the Bishops as successors of the Apostles, and this unity is very important for the life of the Church” (translated from the original French).
Members and supporters of Juventutem are cordially invited to make arrangements to be in Rome and attend the Mass, which will be preceded by other Juventutem activities (full schedule to be advertised soon). All pilgrims in Rome are naturally invited as well, regardless of their involvement with Juventutem. The event will be part of the Populus Summorum Pontificum Pilgrimage 2014. The following day, on Saturday 25 October, His Eminence Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, will celebrate a Solemn Pontifical High Mass according to the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite in Saint Peter’s Basilica, at 12:00 noon.

PRESS RELEASE BY
THE CŒTUS INTERNATIONALIS SUMMORUM PONTIFICUM
2 FEBRUARY 2014,
FEAST OF THE PURIFICATION OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY
The Cœtus Internationalis Summorum Pontificum is happy to announce that His Eminence Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke, Prefect of the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura, will celebrate the Solemn Pontifical High Mass according to the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, on Saturday, October 25, in Saint Peter’s Basilica, at 12:00 Noon, on the occasion of the Third Summorum Pontificum Pilgrimage to Rome.
The CISP would like to thank His Eminence Angelo Cardinal Comastri, Archpriest of Saint Peter’s Basilica, for responding so quickly to our request and making possible the celebration of the Holy Mass, the culmination of our pilgrimage ad Petri Sedem.
We can therefore begin to organize the pilgrimage, already now, eight months in advance, making it easier for pilgrims from Europe and from abroad to plan to participate in the pilgrimage to Rome. Thanks to the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum of H.H. Pope Benedict XVI of 7 July 2007, the riches of the Extraordinary Form are becoming more and more accessible to the Universal Church (Instruction Universæ Ecclesiæ, 30 April 2011), and people from all parts of the world are able to gather in pilgrimage for solemn prayer and for offering a witness to the faith.
We remind all that the Pilgrimage will begin on Thursday, October 23, and will conclude on the Feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King, on Sunday October 26, 2014.
To His Eminence, Darío Cardinal Castrillón Hoyos, during this Pilgrimage to Rome by the Coetus Internationalis Summorum Pontificum during the Year of Faith, His Holiness Pope Francis wishes to extend his most cordial welcome and hopes that, during your devout passage here among the tombs of the Apostles, you will comply more closely with Our Lord as celebrated at Mass and in the public prayer of the Church, and thus receive new energy in living the life of the Gospels.
The Supreme Pontiff has called down upon you the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the maternal protection of the Mother of God, and gladly gives Your Eminence and all the Bishops, Priests, Religious, and faithful who have come to this sacred celebration his Apostolic Blessing to bring you all peace and spiritual zeal.
Archbishop Pietro Parolin, Secretary of State to His Holiness

Dear “Summorum Pontificum” Pilgrims,
Your annual pilgrimage to Rome is drawing very close. Let me tell you that now, as you begin to prepare yourselves spiritually for this event, I have prayed the Holy Trinity to rain down blessings upon you all so that you may receive as many graces as possible during all the sacred ceremonies you take part in at the end of October in the eternal city.
May your fervent prayers and faith, which will receive a fresh impulse from St Peter’s Chair, be the pledge of many further blessings for you, your families, and especially for our Holy Father and for Holy Mother Church.
May God bless you one and all!
Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke
