Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos, RIP

IMG_5676

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.
