Another new Pastor.

Congratulations to the new bishop of Digne, France, on his episcopal consecration last Saturday in the Cathedral of Digne.
Mgr Jean-Philippe Nault is a member of the St John Vianney Society based in Ars, to which I also belong. May he have the prayerful support of all in his Diocese; he will certainly have the support of the members of our Fraternity. It is a good sign for the Society, that one of its members - the first - has been chosen as a Bishop. I am myself very grateful to God for the nurturing of the Diocesan priesthood which this Society has undertaken, and especially for the way in which it brings together its members, and forms them through fraternity.

Good news. I hope that the priestly society will gain many more members in the Diocese of Leeds.
