This afternoon we’re driving the family to St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parish in Carmel, Indiana to assist at the Gregorian Rite (Extraordinary Form) of Mass. The availability of this Mass is the fruit of the Holy Father’s motu proprio Summorum Pontificum, and we are grateful to Bishop Wm. Higi of the Diocese of Lafayette in Indiana for greatly expanding the availability here in north central Indiana. Though the Mass is currently held in a small day chapel on the Seton parish grounds, and I’m sure it will be standing room only, I have no complaints. I encourage anyone living in the area to support this important work. If you’re further north, you’ll be happy to know that Bishop John D’Arcy of the Fort Wayne – South Bend diocese is also expanding the availability of the Gregorian Rite.
