Salt + Light is pleased to announce the release of the DVD set "Consistory 2012, Celebrating Thomas Cardinal Collins, Archbishop of Toronto".
During the Consistory at the Vatican on February 18, 2012, Archbishop Thomas Collins of Toronto became the 16th Cardinal in the history of the Canadian Church. Salt + Light was there bringing you full coverage of the event.
“The elevation of Archbishop Thomas Collins to the College of Cardinals was truly an historic event for the whole Church in Canada,” said Fr. Thomas Rosica, C.S.B. “For those of us who were privileged to experience the moving moments in Rome in February 2012 with Cardinal Collins, his family and friends, they were unforgettable ceremonies, rich in tradition, history, beauty and prayer. This DVD collection will allow you to experience the creation of cardinals, and the blessing that they represent for the whole Church, especially for Canada.”
This DVD set includes the Ordinary Public Consistory, where each Cardinal was formally elevated, along with Mass the next day in St. Peter’s Basilica, celebrated by Benedict XVI with the new Cardinals. The week leading up to the consistory is chronicled in the half-hour special, “A Cardinal in the Making”. Also included are four interviews with Cardinal Collins, conducted by Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB (in French, Italian, and two in English).
Finally, the five DVD set contains three special liturgies celebrated by Cardinal Collins after the Consistory: a Mass of Thanksgiving in the crypt of St. Peter’s Basilica, a Mass of Thanksgiving in St. Michael's Cathedral in Toronto, and Solemn Evening Prayer in the Cardinal’s hometown parish church of Our Lady Immaculate in Guelph, Ontario.
