Pontifical Mass in the Extraordinary Form in Amsterdam

Interesting announcement from the church of St. Agnes in Amsterdam. I haven’t been able to find any more information, but that’ll no doubt appear on the website of the FSSP-run church in due time.

Msgr. François Bacqué, the apostolic nuncio to the Netherlands, will be offering a pontifical Mass in the Extraordinary Form. It’ll be the first pontifical (ie. a Mass celebrated by a (arch)bishop) EF Mass in the Netherlands since the publication of Summorum Pontificum. The number of priests in the Netherlands able to offer Mass in this form is still quite limited, although there has been a slow increase. No Dutch bishops have yet shown any public interest, and it seems it’ll now fall to French-born Msgr. Bacqué to be the first. Perhaps this Mass will be an inspiration to other priests and bishops that leads to a wider implementation of Summorum Pontificum. I suspect that the Vatican’s request for updates about exactly has something to do with it as well.

Bishop Antonio Tobias of Novaliches in the Philippines offered a Pontifical Mass in the Extraordinary Form in 27 April at a convent chapel in his diocese

One thought on “Pontifical Mass in the Extraordinary Form in Amsterdam”

  1. creo que como ya lo dice el mismo articulo este proceso va lento pero fortaleciendose cada día mas, quien obedece no se equivoca y es de gran placer el saber que obispos y sobre todo un nuncio se atreva a celebrar el novus ordo debmos aprender a ser pacentes y a dixfrutar de estos pequeños pero seguros pasos.
    ¡viva Benedicto XVI!
