AD PETRI SEDEM
FROM 27 TO 29 OCTOBER 2023
Here are finally some news regarding our next pilgrimage.
The general framework is unchanged, but there is a significant and sensitive change concerning Saturday.
Friday October 27, 2023, 5:30 p.m.
Vespers in the Basilica of Sainte-Marie-des-Martyrs (Panthéon), presided over by Bishop Athanasius Schneider
Saturday, October 28, 2023
9:30 a.m.: Adoration in the Basilica of San Celso e Giuliano
10:30 a.m.: Departure of the procession to Saint Peter's Basilica
11 a.m.: since Cardinal Gambetti – certainly due to a superior order – is not authorizing the celebration of a Mass this year (i.e., the directive is only for this year, and even so, subject to a possible last minute change), our celebration there will consist of:
1. The procession to the tomb of the Prince of the Apostles and the chanting of the Credo
2. The chanting of the office of Sext of the Holy Apostles Simon and Jude at the altar of the Chair
3. The veneration of the relics of the Holy Apostles Simon and Jude (their bodies are in the Vatican Basilica); the blessing; and a final chant.
Sunday October 29, 2023 at 11 a.m.
Solemn Mass of Christ the King in the Church of the Santissima Trinità dei Pellegrini
It would be good if there were even more of us this year, coming from all over the world, to show a strong presence while raising our prayers. May the holy angels assist our fervent testimony.
