Former followers of Lefebvre return to Church (Saint Pius X)

“Vatican City, Sep. 11, 2006 (CNA) - A group of six French priests and several seminarians who were formerly members of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Pius X have reestablished full communion with the Catholic Church and begun the “Institute of the Good Shepherd,” with the blessing of Pope Benedict XVI.”

This is great! The prodigal sons of the Church return home :smiley:

‘I tell you solemnly, there is more rejoicing in Heaven over one sinner who repents than over 99 just who have no need of repentance’

welcome home!

Praise God!

God still works wonders, every day.

I am very pleased. I imagine they will do much necessary good for the Church, now that they have returned fully into communion.


I love good news! Thanks!

Wow!! That’s awesome news! maybe others will be encouraged to consider the same reunion.

And this will help give many traditionalist minded Catholics encouragement that we and our Magesterium care about them.
