Is Holland's Liturgical Winter at an End?
The seminary of the Diocese of s'Hertogenbosch has since 1987 been revitalized from the desolate situation of the Catholic Church and its priestly formation, to promote in the Netherlands a faithful and Rome true movement.
As blogger Mark de Vries reports, at the beginning of June in the cathedral of s'Hertogenbosch, of the two of the nine new priests in the 9 who were ordained for Holland: Patrick Kuis and Geoffry de Jong. Both are through their education, made familiar with the Old Mass at Sint-Janscentrum. Patrick Kuis , 27 years old, celebrated his first Sacrifice of the Mass with a pontifical Mass in Amsterdam's St. Agnes Church at which the Society of St. Peter is active.
A sign that the Old Mass has a rising influence on priestly formation and radiating also upon the once so modernistic Dutch seminarians, priestly candidates and new priests.
The documentation by Paix Liturgique of 2011 about the liturgical situation in the Netherlands is still available on the internet.
