Caeremoniale Romanum was founded in 2010. It had more or less intense manifestations of activity. After a period of stagnation of several years, it came back to life at the end of 2022. The revitalising impulse was the dies natalis of Pope Benedict XVI, whose thought and attitude were also the main inspiration for the emergence of this project almost fifteen years ago.
The last few months have been an attempt at a multidimensional and multifaceted reorganization of the project, one of the first visible fruits of which is the new version of this website.
The realisation of the (old and new) ideas and plans is largely dependent on the processing capacity and the possible independence of the actions taken, also in financial terms – the idealistic youthful enthusiasm and willingness to act pro publico bono, based on the assumption that bonum diffusivum sui est, unfortunately, loses out to the inexorable prose of everyday life of an adult man, who in today’s world often has (too) many responsibilities. For this reason, we ask our PT Readers and Supporters for broadly understood patience.
We will strive to ensure that the efforts and activities undertaken and materials published meet the expectations of yours and ours in the best possible way! In the meantime, we encourage you to familiarise yourself with the new website and its structure, as well as with the links to our social media profiles, where you can already find a lot of material.
Ut in omnibus glorificetur Deus!
PS. An attentive mind will immediately notice the change in the project description (subtitle). Well, the former Liturgia et mores Curiae Romanae has been replaced by Liturgia et mores Ecclesiae Romanae. Why such a change? Because 'Roman Curia’ is a more technical and relatively narrow term. The Church of Rome refers to both the Roma Papale itself and the Universal Church, including the Roman Rite as such. The actual subject matter of the project is therefore broader, but also more appropriate.
