Prayer Appeal For The FSSPX

Istvan Dorffmaister, "Pentecost"

Messa In Latino invites the faithful Catholics to pray for the full reconciliation between the FSSPX and Rome.

After consultation with priests collaborating with the site, the following prayer has been published:

V/.Veni, Sancte Spiritus,
R/. Reple tuorum corda fidelium, et tui amoris in eis ignem accende.
V./ Emitte Spiritum tuum et creabuntur;
R./ Et renovabis faciem terrae.

Deus, qui corda fidelium Sancti Spiritus illustratione docuisti, da nobis in eodem Spiritu recta sapere, et de eius semper consolatione gaudere. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

My unworthy translation:

V. Come, Holy Ghost,
R. Fill the heart of your faithful, and kindle in them the fire of your love;
V. Send your Spirit, and it will be a new creation;
R. And you will renovate the face of the earth.

Let us pray
O Lord, who with the light of the Holy Ghost instruct the faithful, grant us to taste, through the same Spirit, what is right* and to always enjoy His comfort. For Christ our Lord. Amen.

The prayer should be recited between Pentecost Sunday and Trinity Sunday.

Those who recite the Rosary daily are asked to offer the rosary for this intention.

Priests are asked to add this to their intention during Mass.


* the site’s italian translation of recta is given with “la vera sapienza”, “the true wisdom”.

  1. I always suspected that the beatification of Pope Pius XII would come first. Not that these two situations are linked, but they will be two huge and furious secular storms that will have to be weathered when they finally happen. There is nothing blocking the beatification other than fear, but there is still no middle way between the Holy See and the FSSPX theologically from what I can see (without Magesterial clarification binding on the whole Church) . To see reconcilliation happen first seems incredible to me. Not that I am complaining. These two things must eventually happen.

    I will definitely keep them in my prayers.

    Please do pray for me as well. I will be receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation tomorrow.

    Peace in Christ

    • Congratulations Irenaeus and my prayers are assured!

      As to Pius XII, I agree with you that Pope Benedict would seem to want to have a storm at a time 😉 and that it the reconciliation woul dreally happen this would not only be huge, but very probably extremely controversial.

      As to the middle way, I think SSPX will accept the validity of the council properly interpreted, and the Vatican will recognise that they had legitimate grievances about it.

      The only ones who in my eyes will be disappointed are going to be the trendy losers and the quasi-sedevacantist extremists who expected for the Vatican to simply cancel with a stroke of the pen Vatican II itself. This was never in the cards and is never going to happen.

      Again, congratulations to you!


  2. Congratulations and prayers from my side as well.

    My 2nd daughter will be receiving the sacrament of confirmation on next Sunday, the Trinity Sunday.

    May I also ask you for your prayers for her.
