Amongst the items on the agenda at the Society AGM (held yesterday), was confirmation that I will now commence a three year period on the Latin Mass Society National Committee.
I feel a sense of privilege and humility and pray that my contribution will help further the objectives of the Society.
Whilst I needed no reminder, it was quite apparent in the addresses given at the meeting that the need for a society promoting the Traditional Roman Rite has not diminished despite some comments from outside the LMS claiming it is 'job done' post 'Summorum Pontificum'.
We must be guarded against complacency. I think it was David Forster (Secretary) who said that until every parish has a Traditional Mass every day (or least in my mind every Sunday or Holy day), the work of the LMS is not done.
We enter the 50th year of the Society in 2015 - the voyage thus far has witnessed choppy waters and whilst those waters may now appear calm, we are far from our destination port!

Oremus pro Pontifice nostro Francisco: Dominus conservet eum, et vivificet eum, et beatum faciat eum in terra, et non tradat eum in animam inimicorum eius.
Omnipotens sempiterne Deus, qui facis mirabilia magna solus: praetende super famulos tuos, et super congregationes illis commissas, spiritum gratiae salutaris; et, ut in veritate tibi complaceant, perpetuum eis rorem tuae benedictionis infunde.
