Pray for Bishop Bernard Fellay's FatherWritten by Michael Matt | Editor
Eternal life grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him.
Today, January 5, 2017, it is with sorrow that the United States District Office learned of the passing of Mr. Guy André Louis Fellay, the father of our Superior General Bishop Bernard Fellay. He was 86 years old. His funeral will take place on Monday, January 9, at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel of the SSPX seminary in Ecône, Switzerland.
Please pray for the repose of Mr. Fellay, along with the soul of his wife and Bishop Fellay's mother, Françoise, who passed away only 15 months earlier. We also ask that you remember Bishop Fellay and his family in your prayers during this time of grief and mourning. READ MORE HERE

The Remnant values the comments and input of our visitors. It’s no secret, however, that trolls exist, and trolls can do a lot of damage to a brand. Therefore, our comments are heavily monitored 24/7 by Remnant moderators around the country. They have been instructed to remove demeaning, hostile, needlessly combative, racist, Christophobic comments, and streams not related to the storyline.

We thus acknowledge no moral obligation whatsoever to allow anyone and everyone to try to undermine our editorial policy and create a general nuisance on our website. Therefore, Remnant moderators reserve the right to edit or remove comments, and comments do not necessarily represent the views of The Remnant.
