Update to Petition

I have made some slight revisions to the petition. Please list your Name, City, and Home Parish (If applicable) and I will add your name to the petition. Deadline for entry is 01MAY08.

Petition is as follows:

Most Reverend Thomas J. Rodi, DD
Bishop of Biloxi, Mississippi

Your Excellency:

In keeping with the recent document Summorum Pontificum promulgated by our Holy Father, Benedict XVI, we the undersigned request that the Extraordinary Form of the Mass be made available in the Diocese of Biloxi on Sundays, holy days of obligation and, insofar as is possible, on weekdays. This petition is submitted to Your Excellency pursuant to the provisions of paragraphs 5.1 and 5.2 of Summorum Pontificum.

We realize it may take time to finalize arrangements to satisfy this request; in consideration of this, we offer Your Excellency any form of assistance possible so that our humble request may be viewed and acted upon with favor. You Excellency is assured of our prayers on your behalf, both as Archbishop-select of Mobile, Alabama, as well as for whomever may be selected to succeed you in the Diocese of Biloxi and for our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI.

Your Excellency's consideration of this request will be deeply appreciated.
