Patriarchal Letter regarding the Liturgy in Election of a Pope

  The mass in election of a Pope is the Votive Mass of the Holy Spirit, with red vestments.

  Upon the election of the Pope, the general Votive Mass of Thanksgiving is used, with the collects for the Pope used in place of those given for the Mass of Thanksgiving; or else the Common of Popes is used with the general collects of the current Pope used in-stead of the collects given in the Common of Popes. In either case, the solemn collect for the Pope, followed by the Tu es Petrus, etc., as given in the Liber Usualis, follows the Last Gospel. Red vestments are used for this liturgy.

  On the day of Papal coronation, the Common of Popes is again used with the general collects of the current Pope used instead of the collects given in the Common of Popes. This likewise follows on the anniversary of the Papal coronation.

  Given in the Court of Saint Mary of Walsingham this 27th day of February in the two thousand thirteenth year of the Incarnation.
