CHICAGO, IL - SEPTEMBER 11, 2007 - On September 14, 2007, the Motu Proprio "Summorum Pontificum" of Pope Benedict XVI, issued on July 7, 2007, goes into effect. This gift to the Church acknowledges the rights of the Extraordinary Form of the Traditional Latin Mass, which evangelized the the entire Western world and which was celebrated and loved by countless saints.

Pope Benedict XVI, in his Motu Proprio, explains that the Missale Romanum of 1962, promulgated by Saint Pius V and revised by the authority of Pope John XXIII during Vatican II, was never abrogated.

The Catholic faithful now rejoice to see the Roman Church thus regain her Latin liturgical Tradition, hoping that, by Pope Benedict's pastoral guidance, they may have frequent access to the treasure of the Traditional Mass for the worship of God, the immeasurable benefit of the Church and for the salvation of souls.

The Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, chosen by Francis Cardinal George, Archbishop of Chicago, to serve the pastoral needs of the faithful attached to Traditional Latin Mass, extends deep gratitude to our Sovereign Pontiff for this great spiritual benefit.

In joyful thanksgiving for the blessings of Almighty God poured out so lavishly upon the Roman Church by the hands of our Pontiff, the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius will offer a Mass of Thanksgiving in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite (1962 Missale Romanum). The Latin High Mass will be held on September 14, 2007, at 7:30 p.m. at St. John Cantius Church, 825 N. Carpenter Street, Chicago, Illinois 60622. The public is welcome to attend.

After the Traditional Latin High Mass, the faithful will chant the "Te Deum" and join in a special outdoor procession (weather permitting) with the Relic of the True Cross. During the procession the Catholic faithful will chant the Litany of the Saints in Latin. Returning to the Church all will be invited to venerate the Relic of the True Cross.

The Cantate Domino Choir, directed by Rev. Scott A. Haynes, S.J.C., will provide choral music. The choir is to be accompanied by Walter Whitehouse, the Associate Chapel Organist of the Rockefeller Chapel at the University of Chicago.
