Message from the President, Dr Joseph Shaw

To the Member Associations of the Federation, and all our supporters and friends.

It is with some apprehension that I take up the role of President of the FIUV, in light of my personal limitations, and at a time when the situation of the Church’s ancient Latin liturgy is more difficult than it has been for many years. Yet I do so with confidence in the strength of the Federation, represented above all by our membership and support base. This is larger and more active than it has ever been in our history, and the current difficulties are stimulating further growth.

Over the last decade I have been closely involved in two large-scale projects undertaken by the Federation: the production of the Position Papers on the 1962 Missal, which began to appear individually in 2012 and were published as a book in 2019, and the Report on the implementation of Summorum Pontificum for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which we submitted to the Holy See in July 2020. These utilised different aspects of the deep reserves of experience which exist among the Federation’s members and supporters: the Position Papers calling on their intellectual resources, and the Report on their practical knowledge of their local situations. No other organisation could have undertaken either project so successfully, and they demonstrate the Federation’s irreplaceable role in the traditionalist movement.

FIUV Video series

The Una Voce Federation has created a series of illustrative videos that show some of the most relevant aspects of the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM) in order that more people can get to know and appreciate the richness of our Catholic Heritage.

Our YouTube channel is here; they are also collected on this page.

Here are the two most recent. More are planned.
