Bishop of Frejus-Toulon Opens Churches to SSPX

(Paris) The bishop of Frejus-Toulon, Mgsr. Dominique Rey, issued a decree on May 4, 2017, which allows priests of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Pius X to hold funerals in all churches and chapels of the diocese.

The French bishop, who is known as a friend of the tradition, cited the letter of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei on the occasion for his decree. The Commission had announced last March 27 that Pope Francis officially acknowledged the blessings made by priests of the Society in addition to the Sacrament of Penance.

"Each priest who is a member of the FSSPX, has, from the date of the signing of this decree in the territory of our Diocese of Frejus-Toulon, the necessary authority to accept the marriage promise between the bride and groom who turn to a FSSPX priest for their marriage."

The canonical validity and recognition is valid when the marriage takes place in a church or chapel of the Society before a priest, and the episcopal office is informed in advance. A separate form for these notifications has been attached to the decree. The vows are recorded in the marriage register of the Society, the copy of which is sent annually to the diocese's office.

According to the decree, the funeral ceremony can be celebrated by a priest of the Society in every church or chapel of the diocese. The priest of the FSSPX has to arrange the day and time with the local pastor and inform the Chancellery. In this case, the marriage will be entered in the parish register of the parish in which it was witnessed.

On the 15th of August Bells Will Sound For Persecuted Christians of the Orient Will Sound

(Paris) On the feast of the Assumption 40 diocese of France, Luxembourg, Belgium and Switzerland will ring their   church bells for the persecuted Christians in the Middle East. The 15th of August was chosen because the Blessed Virgin Mary is the patron saint of Christendom and is particularly revered in the Orient.
The diocese will thus set an example of solidarity and solidarity with the persecuted Christians. The bells  call for prayers especially for the oppressed, exiled and enslaved Christians. "If everything goes bad and there is apparently no hope, one turns to Mary, which brings down the walls," said Archbishop Jean-Pierre Cattenoz of Avignon the initiative.

Initiative for persecuted Christians from Bishop Dominique Rey of Fréjus-Toulon

The solidarity campaign starts from Bishop Dominique Rey of Fréjus-Toulon, one of the most prominent bishops of France who trains priests of his diocese in both forms of the Roman Rite, and has even celebrated in the traditional rite and promotes this in his diocese. The small diocese in the Provence has by far the highest number of seminarians throughout France.
His announcement, ringing the bells to the Assumption of the persecuted Christians was followed immediately by the bishops of Gap Embrun, Ajaccio, Avignon and Bayonne. All dioceses where the traditional rite has a home.
Meanwhile, the group of dioceses taking part in the action has greatly increased. There are now 40 dioceses and not just in France but also in French-speaking Switzerland, in Belgium and Luxembourg.

Charity concert of singing priests - disability symptomatic of the state of Europe

The singing French priests "Les Pretres" from the diocese of Gap have donated the proceeds from two large benefit concerts for the persecuted Christians in the Orient. Originally, the Parisian society for public transport (RATP) had refused to accept posters for the charity concert, because  it is "religious advertising"  (see "France suffers from its secularity" - priest of Parisian subways "too political"? ). But this is contrary to the secularism of France. The refusal sparked an intense debate. Many people were outraged because they thought it absurd that a benefit concert for persecuted Christians was considered   "religious advertising" and that a relief operation has been hampered by the refusal.
This was partly a fundamental discussion about the fact that in the Middle East  Christians die, but rather than  providing assistance,  the West holds abstract and antichristian discussions. "While we are discussing, people are dying in the East. Solidarity is different, a young woman wrote in the Internet log of the singing priests.
The discussion at least led to such  great interest in the charity campaign of the singing priests that one concert became two. Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve  and also Senate President Gerard Larcher attended. Unfortunately, the bishops of other parts of Europe have not taken up the initiative of Bishop Dominique Rey and excepted themselves from  the "French," a European mark of solidarity and solidarity with the persecuted Christians.

New Traditional Friendly Bishop for Martinique

(Paris) The new Archbishop of Fort de France in the French overseas department of Martinique in the Caribbean is the Dominican, David Macaire. Pope Francis appointed the former prior of the Dominican convent of Sainte Baume and exorcist of the Diocese of Frejus-Toulon on 7th of March.
According Riposte Catholique, Archbishop Macaire belongs to a new generation of priests in France. Along the lines of Benedict XVI, he shows sensitivity to the traditional Roman rite. Father Macaire was chaplain of the Catholic Pathfinders and worked closely together with the traditional Bishop Dominique Rey of Frejus-Toulon in Provence.
Colonized in 1635 by France, the area  came under French rule in 1664. Approximately 390,000, of which 85 percent are of black African descent. They came in the 17th / 18th Centuries as slave labor on the plantation systems. Slavery in Martinique was abolished in 1848. In 2010, a majority of the electorate voted against greater independence from France.
In 1850, Pope Pius IX. made the Diocese of Martinique a suffragan of the Archdiocese of French Bordeaux. The diocese comprised the entire island. In 1967 it was raised by Pope Paul VI. to the Archdiocese of Saint Pierre and Fort de France with two suffragan sees in the territory of the other French West Indies.

"Missionaries for Europe" -- New Traditionalist Initiative for the New Evangelization of Old Europe

(Toulon) The traditional bishop of Frejus-Toulon, Dominique Rey has launched a new initiative for vocations and evangelization.

The decline in vocations to the priesthood on the old continent and the need for new evangelization of Europe are inextricably linked. The Bishop of Provence is looking for new initiatives. Promoting the tradition belongs as much to is as the mission to Muslims. The most recent initiative is the opening of a training house for future priests, missionaries from America, who are trained for the new evangelization of Europe. They are coming after their ordinations in European dioceses, in the specific case, particularly to be put to use in France.

The Patron of the new facility is Saint Alberto Hurtado. With the academic year 2014/2015, the new seminary will begin operation. The sponsorship of the Bishop Rey is being entrusted to The Fradernidad St. Jose Custodia (FSJC), a religious community dedicated to Saint Joseph in Chile.

The Order was founded by Federico Alcamán Riffo, a Chilean priest, who acts mainly through popular missions, he also founded a branch because of the vocations awakened a women's branch in 1999 and a men's branch in 2002. The charism of the Order is the mission of the particular care of the Divine Liturgy, which takes place in both forms of the Roman Rite and in the dissemination and promotion of the kingdom of Christ. Since 2006, the Order has been operating in the U.S. with the new evangelization. Since 2010, it also maintains an office in the diocese of Frejus-Toulon.

Priestly Fraternity of San Jose

The seminarians of the house of St. Alberto Hurtado are trained in both forms of the Roman Rite at the Seminary of the Diocese of Frejus-Toulon and in the house itself. The Diocese of Frejus-Toulon in France has the largest number of diocesan vocations. The reason for this is the orthodox approach of the bishop and his openness to the traditional rite.

It has already set up a website set up in Spanish, which is aimed directly at young men in America who feel a vocation to the priesthood.

Diocesan Seminarian Ordained in the Old Rite -- Mission to Muslims -- Sacra Liturgia Event

(Toulon) Last Tuesday Bishop Dominique Rey, the Bishop of Frejus-Toulon, consecrated a seminarian of the diocese in the old rite as deacon. The remarkable thing is that it does not concern the members of Ecclesia Dei community, but a diocesan seminarian. The Bishop of Frejus-Toulon treats the two forms of the Roman Rite, as Pope Benedict XVI had recognized, as equals.

The diaconate was held in the traditional Benedictine Abbey of Notre Dame de Fontgombault where the new deacon was trained liturgically under the direction of Dom Jean Pateau. In his homily, Bishop Rey stressed the connection between the diaconate and the Eucharistic Sacrifice. This is the fourth diocesan seminarian who has been brouight by the Bishop of Frejus-Toulon in this way to the priesthood.

In 2011, Bishop Rey caused a stir as he consecrated one of his deacons to the priesthood in the Old Rite. The Instruction, Universae Ecclesiae on the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum, states that ordinations in the ordinary form of the Roman Rite should be made. Only the Ecclesia Dei communities and other communities with explicit permission to celebrate the traditional rite are exempt. However, Rome recognized the example of the Diocese of Frejus-Toulon immediately with an indult was granted without further notice.

Bishop Rey is the initiator of the International Liturgical Conference, Sacra Liturgia, which will be held from the 25th to 28th of June in Rome. In the diocese there are also the Missionaries of Divine Mercy of Father Fabrice Loiseau, an Old Ritual Community of Diocesan Right, which was canonically erected in the diocese of Frejus-Toulon in 2005 and is under the authority of Bishop Rey. The triple apostolate of the community is: promoting the worship of the Divine Mercy of St. Faustina Kowalska, Eucharistic adoration and the evangelization of Muslims. The latter has shown itself as an apostolate community at the forefront of new Catholic communities that respond to the specific challenges of their time. [View with PicLens]
