|Pius Benedictine Saying Mass at|
(kreuz.net, Siegburg) On May 25th the SSPX Benedictine Bernhard Huber said the levitical High Mass in the Abbey Church of St. Michealsberg in Siegburg.
The 40,000 population city of Siegburg is some 35 km south east of Cologne.
The local Benedictine Abbey has been closed after an almost 1,000 year history. It will in the meantime be transformed into a hotel and serve as an Old Liberal adult miseducation.
The house full of glory is in desolation
Father Huber celebrated Mass at the Michealsberg as part of a pilgrimage with about 100 traditionalists from the surrounding area.
At the end of the Mass they sang the hymn "A house full of glory shines far over the land, from every stone built by God's mighty hand."
The text of this song was written by the poet and priest, Fr. Joseph Mohr (1848 +), at the moment he saw the now dissolved Abbey on the Michealsberg.
The Vatican is helping the Archdiocese of Cologne Hop
The Old Mass at the Michealsberg was clearly only possible after an intervention from the Vatican.
This is from a report at the German website of the SSPX 'pius.info.com'.
Because in his sermon, Father Huber thanked the Vatican authorities for the permission to be allowed to celebrate the pilgrimage Mass.
It was not mentioned that tho authorities of the Archdiocese of Cologne were causing difficulties.
