French Auxiliary Bishop Offers Pontifical High Mass on Christmas

A Courageous Auxiliary Bishop

Msgr Nicolas Brouwet
[Paris, France] On the feast of Christmas, Msgr Nicolas Brouwet, the Auxiliary Bishop of the French Diocese of Nanterre, celebrated a Pontifical High Mass in the Immemorial Mass of All Ages.

The holy sacrifice of the Mass was celebrated in the Parish of Saint John the Baptist of Plessis-Robinson.  Auxiliary Bishop Brouwet follows the Motu Proprio, Summorum Pontificum, with which Pope Benedict desires to promote the celebration of the so-called Tridentine Rite.

Msgr Nicolas Brouwet was named Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Nanterre in 2008.  The Diocese is in the immediate vicinity of Paris.  His decision to celebrate the Holy Mass on Christmas Day is in no way self-evident.   The Diocesan Bishop of Nanterre, Msgr Gérard Daucour is not tradition friendly. Archbishop Brouwet has taken part in the yearly Pentecost Pilgrimage of Tradition from Paris to Chartres.  Despite the
disapproval of his Diocesan Bishop, Msgr Brouwet celebrated the Old Rite at the conclusion of the Pilgrimage in 2011.
