Martin Mosebach & Luc Perrin at Holy Innocents (NYC) on Tuesday, May 12, 2015


We gladly announce that on Tuesday, May 12, 2015 the Society of Hugh of Cluny will sponsor a Solemn High Mass at 6:00 PM at the Church of the Holy Innocents.

Following the Mass, at 7:30 PM, Professor Luc Perrin and Martin Mosebach will speak in Holy Innocents Hall in the lower level of the church.

Luc Perrin, of the University of Strasbourg, France, is perhaps the foremost historian of the Catholic Traditionalist movement in France and in the world. He has publicly defended and proven that “Traditionalism” is not simply a “20th century French political and national movement,” but a more universal phenomenon that has found a much increased popularity, interest, and support in the United States, which Dr. Perrin designates “the promised land for traditional Catholicism.”

Martin Mosebach is one of the foremost authors of Germany. In his own country, he is best known as a novelist and essayist. However, in the English-speaking Catholic world, he is most known and remembered as the author of The Heresy of Formlessness,the seminal work on the traditional Liturgy, which discusses the negative consequences the liturgical rupture has caused in the Catholic Church in the last 5 decades.

Luc Perrin will speak on: “From Benedict to Francis, the Church in Europe at a New Crossroads.”

Martin Mosebach will then speak on: “Paradise on Earth: the Liturgy as a Window on the Hereafter.”

Please join us for this rare opportunity to hear two leading European Catholic thinkers!

Admission is free and open to the public.

(OF) Pontifical Mass for Fr. Benedict Groescehl at Holy Innocents - Feb. 2015

Here are some pictures (taken by Mr. Arrys Ortanez) of the Mass, celebrated by His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Dolan, at the Church of the Holy Innocents on Saturday, February 28th, 2015. This Mass was a Mass for the Dead (OF) for Fr. Benedict Joseph Groeschel.
When Fr. Benedict passed away back in October, Cardinal Dolan was in Rome, so he could not attend Fr. Groeschel's funeral. This Mass was an opportunity to pay tribute to Fr. Groeschel (who was close friends with Cardinal Dolan), and it was done at Holy Innocents becaue Fr. Groeschel used to offers evenings of reflection and celebrate Mass there on the 3rd Saturdays of the month.
There are 360 people in attendance (many Franciscan Friars and Sisters of the Renewal).
