Pope has private meeting with FSSP brass: thanks them for their fidelity to the See of Peter...








On Monday, July 6 the Holy Father met in private audience the Superior General of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter, Fr. John Berg. The meeting took place in the Holy Father's private library in the Apostolic Palace. After the meeting the Holy Father had the pleasure to greet some of the founding members of the F.S.S.P. and he thanked them for their labors while giving each a small gift.

Is this one small step closer to the Holy Father celebrating an EF Mass this year?

So happy for the FSSP. Deo gratias.

I hope the Pope will include the FSSP in the discussions on the documents of Vatican 2 with the SSPX.

Now, how about following up the "thank you" with mitres for Frs. Berg and Bisig?

Isn't that a sight for sore eyes? This picture just makes me happy.

Are there also lay brothers in the FSSP?

There are no lay brothers in the FSSP because it is a priestly fraternity, that is to say a fraternity of priets. It is not a religious order. There is, however, a Confraternity for lay people.
