Coming Desecration of St Peter’s Basilica - Rapid Response Team Rome 2017 - rapid
On Monday, March 13th, St. Peters Basilica will be desecrated as, for the first time in history, Anglican Choral Evensong [roughly equivalent to Catholic Vespers] will be celebrated at the altar of the Chair of St. Peter.
The following details come to us courtesy of our friends at the Fatima Center (and a kind reader of this space, MC):
The service, scheduled for 3:00 p.m. [local Roman time], will be led by Archbishop Moxon from the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, which supplanted the Roman Missal and Breviary in Protestant England centuries ago, and will feature choral music sung by the Choir of Merton College (Oxford University). Catholic Archbishop Arthur Roche, the current Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, will be preaching at the event.
