A new subject has just been invented by the Dominican sisters of Fanjeaux as part of catechism classes: " Course on resistance ". We do not do courses on the rallies (compromisers), but on "the resistance".You thought you had seen everything at the sisters, with history classes aligned with the official courses, French lessons with rotten or immoral authors, progressive catechism classes, a hateful orientation of the girls to universities (we know the disaster for the most part) etc ... so you will have today the right to a course on "resistance"..
We wait with haste, but without illusions, to discover the content of this new material. It's a safe bet that Sr Simoulin had to be in the game to build such a course. It should not have been easy to classify Archbishop Lefebvre in 1988: were the saints an act of resistance or rallying? Is there a conciliar church? Can we resist François when he offers us poisoned gifts? Did the abbot of La Rocque resist? And the seven Deans?
The Dominicans prepare the girls to become good supporters like Pontcallec. So here we are warned about what is now Fanjeaux. We knew it, but at this point ...
Such teaching, not to mention the galloping worldliness in these schools, will surely help good families make good choices .... and benefactors redirect their donations to more serious schools.
Dear Staff, dear Parents,
On Friday 8th March, we will be honoured to receive the visit of our diocesan bishop, the Very Reverend Philip Egan, Bishop of Portsmouth.
The visit will take place in the morning. The bishop has expressed his hope that he will be able to pray the rosary together with staff and pupils, something we are more than happy to accommodate.
In order to show our appreciation of Bishop Egan's interest in our work, I would like to organise a spiritual bouquet for him. Each pupil will be given a copy of the attached, to fill out as best they can. Please assist them in this endeavour. It is a wonderful reminder to them of our duty to pray for priests and pastors beyond our usual surroundings. Please also contribute yourselves. Forms can be returned via the classroom, the office or the grey box in the vestibule. We will present Bishop Egan with the spiritual bouquet when he comes.
Rev. Fr. John Brucciani
