20 seminarians from the St. Peter Seminary in Wigratzbad (FSSP) received the minor ordinations in February 2020.
"This request was already made to my predecessor, who saw in the diocese the conditions were not met to be able to accept the request and it was therefore refused, especially due to the fact that in more than 40 years the implementation of the liturgical reform of the Council throughout Diocese was adopted in peace. "
"I do not understand the reasons, but I will deepen the matter. It is celebrated all over the world. "
"The serpent's attempt is to make people believe that God must disappear so that man can grow. God is resisting the freedom of man, and we have to get rid of God. Today, he indicates a form of even more subtle atheism, to make believe that we do not need God to be happy and to give meaning to life and the world. In reality, the dragon does not just accuse God. The apocalypse also calls him, the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them day and night before God "(Rev 12:10).
"Our Church needs the guidance, support and protection of the Archangel Michael so that she will not be beaten by the winds and storms of spiritual error and confusion in teaching that are prevalent today, even in ecclesial communion."
"The reality is different, and tells of a renewal of the Church, in France and elsewhere, thanks to the traditional orders and communities that attract vocations and now also attract the attention of the future diocesan clergy."The Benedictine abbey Le Barroux, from which the celebrant was called, goes back to a foundation of Dom Gerard Calvet (1927-2008). The Benedictine rejected the liturgical reform of 1969/1970 as a serious break with tradition and returned as a hermit in the French Alps. After companions joined him, he began in 1978 in Le Barroux with the construction of the monastery.
"We can say today that the restoration of the liturgy begun in the Church by Summorum Pontificum is irreversible."
