More than 70 persons gathered together this Saturday August 28 in front of the apostolic nunciature in Paris, avenue du Président Wilson, from 12 to 1 p.m. Indeed, as the end of the holidays approaches, concern is growing among those who attend the traditional liturgy. It is true that the bishops of France have been preaching appeasement and, in a number of dioceses, everything should remain as it is. The Archbishop of Dijon himself, who was a forerunner of the Roman measures, is now looking for an honorable way out. But the violent determination of Rome, which is preparing to launch measures targeting the traditional seminars, remains intact. In addition, one can think that the nuncio in France, Mgr Celestino Migliore, will incite the bishops of France to deliver themselves to the repression of the Tridentine mass. In front of his door, the demonstrators let it be known that the Catholics who live spiritually and doctrinally from this Mass will not let go. They are determined to do whatever is necessary to see that the celebration of this Mass shall never be stopped.
The demonstrators decided to renew their protest every Saturday at the same time and at the same place. The next gathering is therefore fixed for September 4 at noon in front of nr. 14 bis, avenue du President Wilson, in Paris.
