Rorate Confirms Apostolic Visitation of FSSP: Bishop Bruskewitz Leads
Edit: as we’d reported below, there will be a Visitation. Looks like friendly forces so far, possibly just a social call and nothing more.
The recently mentioned Ordinary Apostolic Visitation of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) is, as its name indicates, a routine measure determined by the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei (PCED).
The first news item of the visitation was posted by the FSSP themselves (see here) only with the name of the principal visitator. Rorate can now confirm that the visitation is indeed happening, and the officials are: Bishop Vitus Huonder, of Chur/Coire (Switzerland), Principal Visitor (Wigratzbad)
Dom Hervé Courau, O.S.B., Father Abbot of Notre-Dame de Triors (France), Co-Visitor (Wigratzbad)
Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz, Bishop Emeritus of Lincoln, (United States)
