We were very happy to welcome at Mass today Sr Marie Liesse and her family who were accompanied by Fr Bruno OSB. Sister came all the way over from France to renew her vows to Bishop Williamson. The ceremony took place in the middle of Mass after the Creed. During the sermon Bishop Williamson described Sister as a heroine for staying loyal to Archbishop Lefebvre, but this has meant departing from the Sisters of the SSPX, although he went on to say that she has not left the SSPX but the SSPX has left her.
Fr Bruno OSB is the head of the Priestly Union of Marcel Lefebvre, the group of priests involved in the Combat of the Faith in France against the liberalism of Menzingen.
There was a reception afterwards to welcome our French visitors.
