    The things that he said are over and past, like last year’s grass. We lost a brother today and that is more important. Prayers.

    Actually, there is a current Archbishop of Paris, non? Abp 21 or 33 or whoever. So I guess this may lead to a new red hat, but no personnel changes.

  5. Derik says:

    May God have mercy on his servant Jean-Marie Card. Lustiger, forgive his sins and call him to his Right Hand Side.

  6. RBrown says:

    Abp Vingt-trois has been ordinary in Paris for 26 months.

    Previously, he was ordinary at Tours, near Fontgombault. He has visited the abbey and said mass using the 1962 Missal.
