A Mozarabic Liturgy to be Celebrated in St Peter's Basilica

On May 16th, the Archbishop of Toledo, Braulio Rodríguez Plaza, will celebrate Mass in the Mozarabic Rite at the High Altar of St Peter’s Basilica, starting at 3 p.m., as part of the diocesan pilgrimage to Rome from the Archdiocese of Toledo. This will be the fourth time the Mozarabic Mass is said in St Peter’s: the previous times were on October 15 of 1963, during the Second Vatican Council; May 16, 1992, when Pope St John Paul II celebrated it himself on occasion of the promulgation of the revised Mozarabic Missal and Lectionary; and on December 16 2000, towards the end of the Great Jubilee.
