Addendum to "On birthing priests."

Anyone who has endured even a handful of my posts knows that I often go to the profoundly erudite, linguistically gifted (at least English, Italian, Latin and German) and occasionally laugh out loud funny Fr. John Zuhlsdorf for information, such as this, which popped up this morning. For your convenience I also link the National Catholic Reporter article by Mr. Edwin Pentin here, and also snatch a bit of Mr. Pentin’s prose:

Pope Francis Appoints French Patristics Scholar to Handle SSPX Talks…

Msgr. Patrick Descourtieux, a former official at the now abolished Pontifical Commission ‘Ecclesia Dei,’ is a distinguished patristics scholar who is said to be sympathetic to the SSPX and traditional communities...

I recommend you go there and read the entire thing (it’s not long). I’m putting this up because it’s relevant to what we just discussed on birthing priests, here. Let us just keep chugging along, busting through the ice...

Curate, ut valearis!
