As the Holy Father's trip to Great Britain approaches, the details of his itinerary are still being hashed out. The Pope's master of liturgical celebrations, Msgr. Guido Marini, was in the United Kingdom last week to finalize certain liturgical aspects of the itinerary and finalize the content of the missal that will be used.
With just over two months to go before Pope Benedict's arrival on British soil, Msgr. Marini has visited all of the locations where the Pope will be leading worship in September, according to the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales (CBCEW).
In an interview with CBCEW staff, Msgr. Andrew Summersgill, co-coordinator of the papal visit said that Msgr. Marini and three assistants were in Britain last week for four days to personally visit sites on the Pope's schedule and to revisit and finalize texts to be included in the missal for the trip.
Joining the Roman entourage was also Fr. Paul Conroy, coordinator of the Pope's Sept. 16 stop in Scotland, and Msgr. Philip Moger, who is overseeing the liturgies during the entire trip.
