Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos, RIP
Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos died yesterday. He deserves our prayers.
He was President of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei over the period of the promulgation of Summorum Pontificum, obviously a very important time for those attached to the Traditional Mass.
In the photograph above, he is blessing delegates at the Foederatio Universalis Una Voce during the General Assembly of 2013; below, he is celebrating Mass (Pontifical Low) for them in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel of St Peter's in Rome in 2011. That was the first time a Cardinal has celebrated the ancient Mass in St Peters since the liturgical reform.
There is an obituary of him on Rorate Caeli.
