In the East this morning. It's the feast of Saint Catherine Labouré, to whom Our Lady Immaculate gave the image of the Miraculous Medal, celebrated yesterday; unfortunately I missed the Mass which was celebrated at 0200 my time. Am late to Prime.
I think I'll take a brief nap before Ariodante.
The Bishops of France, individual bishops, the religious institutes attached to the Traditional Rite (FSSP, ICRSP, IBP, Opus Sacerdotale, FSVF and presumably also the FSSPX), the Abbots of Solesmes, Fontgombault, Les Barroux, Triors, Randol, Donezan, and Wisques, as well as Notre-Dame de Chrétienté, AGRIF, Le Salon Beige, Civitas, l'Homme nouveau, and Renaissance catholique, were at the Conseil d'Etat this afternoon pleading their case (well, their lawyers were) against the thirty-persons-per-Mass limit that the French government has introduced. The judge will deliver the verdict this evening or tomorrow. It is time to pray!
The thread of 'live-tweets' written by the Pour la Messe association's writer at the hearing is here. I myself think it is very telling that the government's lawyer had no coherent response to the question, 'why 30 persons?'.
