• Pontifical High Mass in the Extraordinary Form in DC: On April 28th, a Pontifical High Mass in the Extraordinary Form was celebrated at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception by Archbishop Alexander Sample of Portland. It was the first time in 10 years that such a Mass was celebrated there. Abp. Sample gave a homily to the nearly 3000 people in attendance about the impact of Pope Benedict XVI’s Motu Propio, Summorum Pontificum, which gave greater permission for the use of the Extraordinary Form throughout the Church, on his own liturgical celebration and usage. Check out his homily here. And see this video to watch the entire Mass with commentary.
