FIUV Position Papers

The Foederatio Internationalis Una Voce (FIUV: the International Una Voce Federation) is coordinating the preparation of a number of short ‘position papers’ on specific aspects of the 1962 Missal. These are intended as contributions to the debate on the future development of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.

The work is being done by a subcommittee of the FIUV Council, the Liturgy and Spirituality Subcommittee, whose Moderator is Dr Joseph Shaw, a FIUV Council member and the Chairman of the Latin Mass Society.
