Reception of the Tonsure (2013) at Holy Cure of Ars Seminary

La Porte Latine (the Society of St. Pius X French District website) reports that on February 2nd, the Feast of Candlemas, 16 seminarians received the cassock from Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the SSPX, before a great number of faithful and priests (40 in all) and from many different parts of Europe.  The 16 seminarians consisted of 10 French, 2 British, 2 Canadians, 1 Swiss and 1 Italian.

Let us pray for these men as they continue on in the steps to the holy priesthood.

This is wonderful news, and thank you for posting.

I must admit, though, that I cannot understand the SSPX Bishops' use of the Throne. I appreciate the SSPX very much and attend their Masses without hesitation, but it is readily admitted that they do not enjoy Ordinary Jurisdiction, and I can see no reason why the good Bishops need to Pontificate from the Throne, which is an activity bound up with Ordinary Jurisdiction. Again, I mean no disrespect to Their Lordships.
