Switzerland: Pontifical High Mass by Embattled Bishop of Chur

Edit: He's been frequently attacked in the press and by his own clergy and those laity in the Diocese who primarily subsist on the tax subsidies offered to them as part of a nationally recognized ecclesiastical body.  Despite this, he perseveres and thrives.

(Birnau)  On Thursday, the 17th of May, on the Feast of the Ascension the Diocesan Bishop of Church, Msgr Vitus Huonder celebrated a Pontifical High Mass in the pilgrimage church Birnau in Bodensee (Baden-Württemberg).   The liturgical service was organized by seminarians of the Society ofo St. Peter from their seminary at Wigratzbad.  The musical program was in the hands of the Collegium Musicum.
