At the French site Riposte catholique we read that the Archbishop of Dijon, Roland Minnerath, has expelled the FSSP from the diocese. They are to leave by September. They’ve only been there for 23 years.
No consultation. D’un trait de plume… with the stroke of a pen.
If there is anything to the rumors, if it is not in fact a disinformation campaign, about an upcoming “slave act of 2021” against Benedict XVI’s “emancipation proclamation” for diocesan priests, what shall the faithful of Dijon do then? They’ll go to the SSPX chapel in Dijon, of course.
Let us pray that the FSSP and the diocese can work something out, find another way. Fewer priests and Masses in a place is not the way to evangelize, it seems to me.
Meanwhile, FATHERS, get to work.
Let not your hearts be overly troubled. A little anxiety, by the way, can produce clear thought and hard work. Too much can produce paralysis.
Get your Masses established NOW.
