I received a note from a priest of the Fraternity of St. Vincent Ferrer which I share now with the readership:
Dear Father Zuhlsdorf,
I hope this message finds you well. I am FR. JORDAN-MARY, a priest of the Fraternity of St. Vincent Ferrer (FSVF). If you are not yet familiar with our community, we are a group of traditional Dominicans based in France, founded in 1979 and canonically erected as a society of pontifical right in 1988. If you’d like, there is more information available on our website at www.vincentferrer.org .
A group of our priests will be in New York City in order to introduce our community to the American public and to speak about the construction project which we have undertaken to complete our motherhouse in France, including the magnificent conventual church which is already underway. [Isn’t it interesting that the (traditional) Carmelites in Wyoming and the (traditional) Benedictines in Missouri and the (traditional) Benedictine in Clear Creek) are all building?]
In conjunction with this project, we have produced a short video explaining the work we are doing and giving some information about our community. We are acquainted with your wonderful website, and we would be very grateful if in your charity you would be willing to share this video along with a brief text explaining these events to your readers.
With the assurance of our community’s prayers,
