Traditionalist Bishops Celebrate the Immemorial Mass With 1500 WYD Pilgrims

(Madrid) Msgr. Marc Marie Max Aillet,  the Bishop of Bayonne, Lescar and Orlon since 2008 in France will celebrate the Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form at the Parish Church of San Eduardo in Madrid with more than 1500 youth.  This church has been allocated to the youth who are attached to Tradition from France.  The Bishops of Bayonne and Frejus-Toulon have been celebrating Holy Mass in the Tridentine Rite.

In addition, young Catholic pilgrims who are bound to Tradition also use the churches of the Terceer Monasterio de la Visitación (Salesians)and the parish church of San Francisco de Sales.

Msgr Le Gall on August 19th
Bishop Marc Aillet is close to the Community of St. Martin.  His priestly ordination took place in 1982 at the hands of the great Cardinal Giusseppe Siri.  Before his consecration as Bishop he was the General Vicar of the Diocese of Frejus-Toulon, which is known for its closeness to Tradition.  Msgr Aillet promotes the Rite in his Diocese.

[Update] on August 19th, 2011, Msgr Robert Le Gall, Archbishop of Toulose celebrated the Old Rite at the parish church of San Francisco de Sales.  The Benedictine Msgr Le Gall is a famous Liturgist and was named to the tradition rich French Archdiocese in 2006.  In 1992 he founded the Groupe de Chevetogne for the collaboration of Catholics and Orthodox.  Archbishop Le Gall is the Chairman of the Liturgical Commission of the French Bishops Conference.
