Dear “Summorum Pontificum” Pilgrims,
Your annual pilgrimage to Rome is drawing very close. Let me tell you that now, as you begin to prepare yourselves spiritually for this event, I have prayed the Holy Trinity to rain down blessings upon you all so that you may receive as many graces as possible during all the sacred ceremonies you take part in at the end of October in the eternal city.
May your fervent prayers and faith, which will receive a fresh impulse from St Peter’s Chair, be the pledge of many further blessings for you, your families, and especially for our Holy Father and for Holy Mother Church.
May God bless you one and all!
Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke
