Tridentine .Mass celebrated at Westminster

vOR the first time since Nov ember 1970 the Tridentine Mass was celebrated at the High Altar of Westminster Cathedral last Saturday at 11.30 a.m. This rite was superseded by the New Rite of the Mass promulgated in 1969 by Pope Paul VI. The cathedral was filled to the aisles and galleries by a congregation of 2,700. The celebration of the Tridentine Mass was made possible by Cardinal Heenan under an Indult grant-, ed last year to England and Wales by the Pope at the Cardinal's request. and the Mass was arranged by the Latin Mass Society in thanksgiving for the Indult. The annual general meeting of the Latin Mass Society, held after the Mass at Church Hall, Westminster. was attended by more than 400 members. The society's aims and policy were discussed and a resolution passed by an overwhelming majority that "the society maintains a disciplined approach to its courageous efforts to secure the retention of the Tridentine Mass and does not defy lawful authority." It was unanimously agreed that a letter of thanks should be sent to Cardinal Heenan for obtaining the Indult and for offering the use of the Cathedral.
