Another reconciliation between Traditionalists and the Church

| No Comments

Just got back from a wonderful family vacation to Mackinac Island where our family celebrated July 4th with the Catholic parish in St. Ignace by going on a vesper's cruise. What could be more glorious than celebrating America's birthday amidst fireworks while singing the Divine Office with 300 other people?

The news that another group of Traditional Catholics have reconciled with the Church! has the scoop:


Rome, Jul. 2 ( - The Transalpine Redemptorists, a small traditionalist community on the island of Orkney, has been reconciled with the Holy See, the Rorate Caeli blog has revealed. Father Michael Mary, the vicar general of the Transalpine Redemptorists, announced on the group's own blog that the community had been informed that the suspension of its priests has been lifed by the Vatican. "All canonical censures have been lifted," he said, and the group has been welcomed into "undisputed communion" with the Holy See. The traditionalist leader said that he had "humbly petitioned" the Vatican for a restoration of communion, in a June 18 meeting with Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos, the president of the Ecclesia Dei commission. The Vatican replied positively on June 26, he reported. Father Michael Mary expressed his gratitude, and that of the Transalpine Redemptorists, to Pope Benedict XVI, "for issuing, last July, the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum which called us to come into undisputed and peaceful Communion with him."


Let us continue to pray that the SSPX will soon follow.
