Perspectives on the Traditional Liturgy and Catholic Culture in the wake of the Instruction “Universae Ecclesiae” and on the Fourth Anniversary of the Motu Proprio “Summorum Pontificum”
The four years that have elapsed since the effective date of Summorum Pontificum have witnessed an amazing flowering of the Traditional liturgy in this country. While still encountering many obstacles, the Traditional Liturgy continues to acquire new supporters and new homes – often in what previously were thought to be the most inhospitable places. And every Catholic must ask: what does this liturgical ferment mean for the Christian life in the contemporary world? The Society of St. Hugh of Cluny is organizing this conference to take stock of these developments and to provide a broader context for what we have experienced. We will hear extraordinary speakers who, each in a very different way, will provide insights on the political, legal and spiritual dimensions of living Traditional Catholicism today. We also hope that this will be an opportunity for us to get to know each other better and to lay the foundations for continued fruitful cooperation in the work of restoring Christendom.
