The new bishop of Lourdes is a traditionalist!

And there is a VERY HIGH CHANCE that he will celebrate the Traditional Mass in one of the most famous, if not the most famous Marian Shrine in the world!

Philip Gerard Johnson even has a photo of the bishop celebrating the Traditional Mass at the Basilica of St. John Mary Vianney in Ars with the FSSP.

Read more about this story here.


PS from the same article:

The appointment came earlier than expected, since Brouwet's predecessor, Bishop Jacques Perrier, in office since 1997, passed the retirement age of 75 last December 4, and has therefore had just a couple of months of "prorogatio." [Or the bishop is given 2 or 3 more years to stay on the job until his successor comes.]

The choice of Brouwet, like that of Moraglia, did not go through the scrutiny of the cardinals and bishops of the relevant congregation in one of their regular Thursday meetings. Both will take possession of their respective dioceses on March 25, the feast of the Annunciation.  [Did not pass the scrutiny of bishops and cardinals?  Maybe the Holy Father wants more like minded bishops in sees around the world.  He learned something from the appointment of Luis?  LOL!  It also means that traditional priests have a chance of being appointed bishop!  And you know who I talking about!  Sensing the Sacred somewhere?  ;)]


  1. Now i have a Idea who is that Priest who are you talking about Hahaha Sense of Sacred eh?? :P

  2. And I hope the National Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes here will follow suit. My beloved Capuchin Fathers and Brothers, could we not return the tabernacle back to the center of Our Lady's church?
