Immemorial Mass of All Ages Receives Home in Co-Cathedral of Coria-Caceres
(Madrid) The traditional form of the Roman Rite, which has been celebrated in a small suburban church of Caceres in the Spanish region of Extremadura, has experienced an appreciation. In future it will be celebrated every Sunday at 11 am in the Co-Cathedral of the Diocese of Coria-Caceres.
Coria-Caceres will be the second diocese after the Archdiocese of Pamplona, in which the traditional rite "blessing the Church for centuries", will be celebrated in the Diocesan Church. This was made possible by the decision of Bishop Francisco Cerro."Remarkably, both bishops, the Bishop of Coria-Caceres and the Archbishop of Pamplona y Tudela are called Francis," said the Spanish columnist Francisco Fernandez de la Cigoña.
The Co-Cathedral of Santa Maria de Caceres is the most famous church in the city.It goes back to the 13th century.Its present appearance is in a Romanesque-Gothic transition style, which it received in the late 14th and in the 15th centuries.Since 1986 it is part of the world heritage sites.
