Ecclesia Dei Commission Decisions#1

One of the reasons for establishing this Web Log was to make available documents about the celebration of the Mass and Sacraments according to the 1962 Missal. This first posting concerns a letter conveying decisions of the Ecclesia Dei Commission. These decisions, dating from 1992, concern (inter alia) the inclusion of Masses for Saints canonised since 1962; it also concerns the Commission's decision on who may act as a substitute for a subdeacon at the Solemn Mass, in the absence of a deacon or priest.
