“As the subject of the language of worship was discussed in the Council hall over the course of several days, I followed the process with great attention, as well as later the various wordings of the Liturgy Constitution until the final vote. I still remember very well how after several radical proposals a Sicilian bishop rose and implored the fathers to allow caution and reason to reign on this point, because otherwise there would be the danger that the entire Mass might be held in the language of the people-whereupon the entire hall burst into uproarious laughter.”
— Alfons Cardinal Stickler, peritus of Vatican II

Dress Code:

We will visit the Church most days, so dress with modesty in mind. (Men, no shorts. Women, modest clothes.) We ask you to dress nicely for the Masses on Thursday and Friday. Everyone attending this conference knows what it means to dress “nicely,” and we’ll simply leave it at that.

However, regarding the Nuptial Mass on FRIDAY, make sure you’re comfortable. The Old Mission Church is air conditioned, but with so many bodies filling it, doesn’t always feel air conditioned. Moreover, there is not excessive space. Please dress comfortably. We apologize that the Old Mission Church is not as luxurious as some modern structures—but if our Lord Jesus Christ suffered on the Cross for three hours, surely we can manage for one hour!
