IVth Summorum Pontificum Conference -- Cardinal Müller: "Tradition as the Fundamental Principle of Catholic Theology"

(Rome) From 13 -14  June, 2015 the IVth Conference on the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum was held, which  Pope Benedict XVI. had adopted for the Universal Church in 2007.  The meeting was held at the Pontifical University of Saint Thomas Aquinas, better known as the Angelicum.
Like the previous sessions there was also a motto for this year, "A treasure for the whole Church", which finds its complement  in the often-mentioned sentence: "A hope for the whole Church". The first three meetings were held in 2008, 2009 and 2011. It was supposed to take place biannually. The resignation of Benedict XVI. and the election of Pope Francis  persuaded  many of the members that the fourth edition of the conference would be postponed till 2015. 
It was organized in turn by Giovani e Tradizione and 2008 in the wake of the first meeting launched in 2008, Amicizia Sacerdotale Summorum Pontificum .
The meeting was opened with a Holy Mass in the traditional rite, which was celebrated by Cardinal Raymond Burke in the Church of SS. Domenico e Sisto. The conference work was led by the Dominican Vincenzo Nuara, member of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei and the priest moderator of the association, Amicizia Sacerdotale Summorum Pontificum. Father Nuara declared the meeting objective was thus to promote a positive approach to the liturgical question, by making increasingly known the richness of the traditional Mass, which Benedict XVI. had restored to the Church.

On Sunday  Cardinal Velasio De Paolis, emeritus prefect for economic affairs of the Holy See, celebrated Solemn Pontifical Mass in the Immemorial Roman Rite in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel of St. Peter's Basilica.
An interested audience from Italy and abroad listened to presentations and discussions to deepen their liturgical understanding. The focus of the conference in 2015 was the need for a conscious rediscovery of the deeper reasons for the celebration of the traditional rite.
The lectures and sermons will be published in the conference proceedings.
