The Purification of the Virgin Mary

Latins Gonna Latin

From Analysis from Fr. Louis Bouyer’s 1978 essay that may apply today, an excerpt of a lecture given by the then newly-elected superior general of the FSSP:

“There is no possibility to get to Heaven without being united to the Pope,” said Fr. Andrzej Komorowski, the recently-elected Superior General of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), a Society of Apostolic Life of Pontifical right that celebrates the Traditional Latin Mass.

I shouldn't be shocked that he would hold this position but I hadn't thought about the FSSP for some time.
