- FRANCE (again): The all new society of pontifical right "Institute of the Good Pastor", Bordeaux, announces its first ordinations. On February 15th a seminarian received the minor orders given by Mgr Haas of Liechtenstein. And on March 3rd will take place the ordinations of 2 deacons and 2 priests at the seminary of the Institute at Courtalain close to Chartres, by Mgr Luigi of Magistris. The time of glory is far behind when cardinal Hoyos, misleading his new allies trimmed from the Catholic Tradition, had announced that he would proceed personally "in the very near future" to the first ordinations of the Institute. Today this Institute must be happy with much less, on the one hand being assisted by a forgotten archbishop of Nova, a small city lost deeply down in Italy, in truth a pensioner aged 81, and on the other hand being assisted by a bishop which had been chased from Chur in Switzerland by his colleagues to find refuge in the smallest state of Europe, Liechtenstein. After hardly 6 months since its foundation, things became already clear: the Institute, far away from becoming the beacon of a traditional renewal in the Church, is treated like a sick of pestilence by the Church authorities, which fact promises it definitely a place in the shade, with access by the backstairs. This is a result which has been perfectly foreseeable since their abandonment of the well reflected request of good +Mgr Marcel Lefebvre during his famous talks with cardinal Ratzinger in 1988: "Give us bishops, not only one, but at least four, to save the Tradition in the Church!" The Institute of the Good Pastor wanted to do better, while accepting to row ahead WITHOUT own bishops. The result is now evident. But hundred thousands of Catholics, thanks to God, remain indefectibly faithful to the Priests Society Saint Pius X founded by +Mgr Lefebvre, without which all those Institutes would be crushed like butts of cigarettes under the boots of modern bishops, and all the Catholic Tradition along with them. - (ru)
