Friday, 7 July 2017, marks the Tenth Anniversary of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI’s Summorum Pontificum, which, on 7 July 2007, granted all Priests the right to use The 1962 Roman Missal without the permission of their Bishop, and which has resulted in a slow, but steady, rise in Celebrations of The Traditional Latin Mass around the World.
This calls for a drink !!!
And, so, we present to you an original Cocktail in honour of The Pope Emeritus and his historic Motu Proprio.
"What earlier generations held as Sacred, remains Sacred, and great for us, too, and it cannot be all of a sudden entirely forbidden or even considered harmful.
"It behooves all of us to preserve the riches
which have developed in The Church’s Faith and Prayer, and to give them their proper place (from his Letter to the Bishops accompanying the Motu Proprio)."
