Archbishop Pozzo on Summorum Pontificum: Hope for the Future of the Church – On Novus Motus Liturgicus
We are extremely grateful to Archbishop Guido Pozzo, Secretary of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, for sharing with our readers the talk which he delivered for the Fifth Summorum Pontificum Conference in Rome. In the first part, His Excellency gives his appraisal of what has been achieved in the last ten years since the motu proprio became legally active, and in the second looks forward to prospects for the future. I would especially call your attention to these words, considering them in the light of some unfortunate polemical statements recently made against the traditional liturgy. “The restoration of the ancient Gregorian liturgy is not … a step back, but looks to the future of the Church, which can never build itself by destroying or hiding the spiritual, liturgical and doctrinal richness of its past. … To celebrate the old rite means to look with hope to the future of the Church.”

The following is a photopost of a tour I recently undertook at The Players Club On Gramercy Park NYC
The Players Club is a private social club founded in New York City by the 19th-century Shakespearean actor Edwin Booth. In 1888, Booth purchased an 1847 mansion at 16 Gramercy Park, reserved an upper floor for his residence, and turned the rest into a clubhouse. The building’s interior and part of its exterior were designed by architect Stanford White; its entryway gaslights are among the few remaining examples in New York City. It is the oldest club in its original clubhouse and was named a National Historic Landmark in 1962.
The Players Club is not just a club of actors and behind the scenes theatre types but home to a repository of a great many Christian playwrights as well. It serves as a social club with one of the greatest collections of American and British theatre history, memorabilia, and theatrical artifacts. It boasts to have the largest private collections of stage memorabilia, costumes and weaponry . the club’s collection also includes Edwin Booth’s family size Holy Bible complete with floor stand in his preserved former bedroom. Edwin Booth notably and repeatedly played the part of the famous Cardinal Richelieu – Full size portrait painting of the Edwin Booth adorned as the Cardinal in one of the main fireplace foyer rooms and on one of the upper floors . the completely preserved original Cardinal vestments/outfit worn, in a glass display case. Some photos can be seen below depicting same as well as his roles as King Richard III in both stained glass and painting.

The Players Club also owns portraits of its members, most notably a portrait of actor Joseph Jefferson painted by John Singer Sargent, a portrait of John Wilkes Booth, Edwin’s brother , the assassin of Abraham Lincoln, hangs in Edwin Booth’s suite, along with the letter Edwin wrote to the public apologizing for the actions of his brother. There is a fully stocked antique library and the club itself is very old , majestic, and traditional. Today, the club still holds “Pipe Nights” honoring theatrical notables, maintains a kitchen, a wine cellar, and a billiard table in its usually busy Grill Room. In the Dining Room, filled with portraits of theatre and film notables and rare playbills from the 19th and 20th centuries, there is a small stage where members and people of the theatre can be honored; staged readings can take place and be tried out.
Note – Photos were taken with an older model Sony 35mm in some areas of the Club’s low light conditions but a higher resolution can be seen by clicking any of them individually
