Traditional Catholics Active in Macon

This Sunday, February 12, 2012 (Sexagessima Sunday) at 2 p.m. there will be a Low Mass at St. Joseph Church in Macon, Georgia. This will be the kick-off event for the new St. Joseph Young Adult Ministry, but everyone is invited to the Mass. The Latin Mass Community will meet briefly following the February 12th Low Mass to discuss the formation of a Lenten Faith Group. That group is tentatively scheduled to meet around 6 p.m. on Sundays during Lent to discuss Fulton Sheen's book The Last Seven Words.

The Macon Latin Mass Community met for the first time following yesterday's High Mass at St. Joseph Church. After the Mass, Fr. McDonald led us in the Te Deum and then gave a talk about the Dialogue Mass - his hope is that the congregation will take a more active role along with the altar servers in saying the responses during Mass.

As an aside from the news: on March 19, we have a Solemn High Mass for the Solemnity of St. Joseph. The Latin Mass Community would really like to use this as a teaching event in hopes of getting more people to regularly come to the Mass. Fr. McDonald yesterday mentioned the idea of doing some catechesis on the TLM during the homily.
Lots of good things going on in Macon with the restoration of Tradition!

Here is the latest on the SSPX situation:

Antoine Marie Izoard, I.MEDIA Agency

Rome, February 20, (Apic). The matter of a return to full communion with the Catholic Church of the Society of Saint Pius X (FSSPX [SSPX]) is "in the Pope's hands", sources close to the dossier revealed to I.Media on February 20, 2012. Now that the phase of discussions with the Lefebvrists is over, Benedict XVI should shortly pronounce a final judgment to put an end, "before summer", to the discussions held since 2009 with the Society separated from Rome.

After having studied the response of the Society of Saint Pius X to the "doctrinal preamble", that had been handed to them at mid-September 2011, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith now awaits the decision of Benedict XVI. "The stage of study and discussion is over, and we have reached the moment for decisions," it is indicated in the Vatican, underlining that, "all is currently in the hands of the Pope, who should deliver a final opinion."

The SSPX has one parish (St Michael's)in Roswell Georgia, we pray that they will be reconciled with Rome soon, it appears that the issue is now in the hands of the Holy Father.

Pope Benedict XVI at the failure of negotiations with the fundamentalist
Jean Mercier

After a final review of the record fundamentalist by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Benedict XVI is to decide now if the dissidents Lefebvrists can be reintegrated into the Catholic Church. The pope, who has worked hard for a reconciliation, faces the fundamentalist rejection of the legacy of Vatican II.

Never the solitude of the head of the Catholic Church has been greater. Pope must decide the issue of reconciliation between the Catholic Church and dissidents Lefebvrists. The Pope must rule after the balance achieved by the Plenary Assembly of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), met from January 24 to 27, who worked on this issue among other topics.

At this asemblée, the prelates of the CDF members scrutinized the answers that the Priestly Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) has given the Preamble doctrine that had been submitted in September 2011. First, the initial response of Bishop Fellay, head of the SSPX, sent to the Vatican in December 2011 and which led to a request for clarification. Then, the second response sent by Bishop Fellay in mid-January 2012. However, sources relayed by the agency I. MEDIA, the second response did not satisfy members of the CDF. Indeed, the FFSPX involves much of the legacy of Vatican II. Officially, according to Monsignor Guido Pozzo, secretary of the Commission Ecclesia Dei, joined by La Vie , the evaluation phase of the response Lefebvrist is completed. The outcome rests in the hands of Benedict XVI. But it is unlikely that the Pope is pronounced differently from the bishops of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
