Usus Antiquior Conference in Portugal Sees Presence of Bragan Rite

The Canons Regular of St. John Cantius are going to be offering a liturgical conference in Fatima, Portugal, this coming September 8-11th, “Restoring the Sacred with the Traditional Latin Mass”, and what particularly struck me was the presence of the Bragan rite -- or use -- at this conference, offered by Fr. Joseph Santos.

From the Canons Regular:

LITURGICAL CONFERENCE: “Restoring the Sacred with the Traditional Latin Mass”

Join the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius from September 8-11, 2010, in Fatima, Portugal, for a liturgical conference on the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. Priests, deacons, seminarians are encouraged to attend. Conferences will also be open to religious brothers and sisters as well as the laity from all over the world. The conferences will be given in the Hotel de Fatima.

Conferences will explain the rubrics of the Traditional Latin Mass, the spirituality and history of this ancient form of the Roman Rite, a treasury of grace, which Pope Benedict XVI has restored to the entire Church. Additionally, we will explain the symbolism of the ceremonies of the Mass and the hermeneutic of continuity. A special feature of the conference will be an introduction to the ancient form of the Latin Rite Mass known as the Rite of Braga Portugal by Fr. Joseph Santos. Lectures will be given in English and Portuguese; translators will be provided at the conference.
