Letters to Editor
Dear Friends at Adoremus,
I just celebrated by birthday on July 15th. I was born in 1917 so I am now 100 years old. God has blessed me in so many ways. My mind is still as clear as can be. Thank you Jesus!
I love reading the Adoremus Bulletin. I received $50 as a gift so I want to give this to you in appreciation for sending me this marvelous paper every time you publish it.
I also pass it on to the pastor of the Cathedral here in St. Augustine.
God bless you all.
Sister St. Margaret Zapf

Ten Years Later: Summorum Pontificum Inspires New Generation to Bridge the Liturgical Divide
On July 7, 2007, Pope Benedict XVI liberalized the celebration of the Holy Mass according to the Missal of John XXIII with his Apostolic Letter Summorum Pontificum. On the same day, in a separate letter to the bishops of the world (Con grande fiducia), the Holy Father explained the motive behind his decision, stating that “it is a matter of coming to an interior reconciliation in the heart of the Church.”

The Mother of Our Love for Christ: Our Lady of Fatima and The Holy Eucharist
The message of Our Lady of Fatima is remarkably simple. The first recipients and beneficiaries of the message were three poor children: Lucia Dos Santos and her cousins, Francisco Marto, and Jacinta Marto, ages 10, 9, and 7 respectively at the time of the apparitions. They understood the message perfectly: Reject sin, pray the rosary, do penance for the salvation of sinner.
Pope John XXIII’s “Quiet” Theology of the Noble Pipe Organ Resounds with Liturgical Implications
Just days before the opening of the Second Vatican Council, Pope John XXIII delivered a now little-known allocution at the blessing of the newly renovated pipe organ in St. Peter’s Basilica. While it may seem unremarkable that the pope would say a few words on such an occasion, his text gives an intriguing theological explanation of the nature of the pipe organ in Catholic worship not found in other ecclesiastical documents.
