A reader sent me some good news:
The new bishop of Lausanne, Geneva, and Fribourg, Switzerland, has given the Basilica of Notre Dame in Fribourg, a beautiful and historic church, to the FSSP! [Fraternity of St. Peter] A FSSP priest will be in charge of all pastoral activities, and a diocesan priest will be administrator for the first year, then hopefully a FSSP will be appointed pastor.
Bishop Morerod is a youngish Dominican involved with the SSPX dialogue before he was named bishop. I’m pretty sure he was rector of the Angelicum, too. [Yes, he was.]
WDTPRS kudos to Bp. Morerod.
When it comes to parish closures we need to get out of the box and start thinking.
