Date of Conclave set

CNN is reporting that the Conclave will begin this Tuesday, March 12th, the Feast of Saint Gregory the Great.

The date is very curious, since this saint was responsible for composing the earliest music of the Sacred Liturgy, the chants that are sung at the Traditional Latin Mass. Often times the incorrectly-termed "Tridentine" Latin Mass is known as the Gregorian Mass, since Gregory was responsible for the liturgical texts, which date back to his reign. (This not to be confused with the Gregorian Requiem Novena of Masses 30 days after death or burial.)

St. Gregory the Great, ora pro nobis!
St. Pius V, ora pro nobis!
St. Pius X, ora pro nobis!
Bl. John Henry Newman, ora pro nobis!
Ven. Fulton Sheen, ora pro nobis!
Abp. Marcel Lefebrve, ora pro nobis!
