After the promulgation of the new Order of the Mass, the Abbé de Nantes boldly entered the battle against the liturgical reform. However, from the autumn of 1969, the theologian of the Catholic Counter-Reformation had a new and even more pressing concern, that of defending the unity of the Church against the schismatic drift.
After two years of philosophy, the seminarians became seniors, moved into the large building and entered “ theology. ” There, it was no longer philosophic reasoning that commanded, but divine Revelation explained by the Church. “ It was no longer work but recreation, or I should say, a permanent contemplation ! [...] We were listening to the Church and, through her, to Our Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, Himself God. ”
Exegetical study of the Psalms, by Brother Bruno Bonnet-Eymard.
« Like all religious, we “chant” the Divine Office night and day. The psalms form its substance. Nothing could be more familiar. Right to our death, they will be the inspired language of our continual prayer. »
On April 1 Pope Francis visited the necropolis located under St. Peter’s Basilica where the original tomb of St. Peter was discovered in the 1940s. The unrelenting work of an Italian researcher, Margherita Guarducci, led to the positive identification of the bones contained in the tomb as those of St. Peter’s. She thus provided historical and archaeological proof in support of the dogma of the primacy of the See of Rome.
The first cordial meeting of Pope Francis with his children surprised and captivated the attention of the whole world. “ It has been said so often that the Church is dead, ” a Canadian journalist exclaimed, “ she is really showing that it is not true. ” Here are the reactions of our Community and of a few friends.
After having witnessed the horrors of the “ Liberation ” during his first holidays in the summer of 1944, “ finally the date for returning to the seminary arrived. I was tremendously happy. The trip was long, through a land marked by battles; we crawled along. When I arrived at Issy-les-Moulineaux, matured by so many events seen, however, from a distance, the change struck me from the first moment. Truly another life was beginning. ” [...]
“ Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, let us all feel intimately united to the prayer of our Savior at the Last Supper, to His invocation : Ut Unum Sint. Let us ask the merciful Father that we might live in fullness the Faith that we received as a gift on the day of our baptism, in order to bear free, courageous and joyful testimony to it. ” Either this declaration includes the will to bring back into the bosom of the Unam Sanctam all the baptised who live separated from her, or it is naught.
Most Holy Father, the announcement of your election to the sovereign pontificate on the evening of Wednesday, May 13, was a great surprise for our Community. Nevertheless, your simplicity, and your smile that reminded us of your predecessor, John Paul I, immediately won us over.
On March 13, 2013, we relived hour by hour the great joy, gaudium magnum, of August 26, 1978, the fulfilment of the act of hope written as an epigraph on each issue of the Catholic Counter-Reformation in the 21st century : “ He will return with his immense heart, with his heart of fire, his poor man’s soul and his smile. He will return! And the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph! ”
All the critical analyses of the teachings and acts of Benedict XVI, published by our Brother Bruno, which form a fascinating chronicle of his pontificate, have confirmed and intensified the accusations of heresy made by our Father against Joseph Ratzinger.
In fact there is every reason to think that Benedict XVI conceived that his duty as “ father and defender of the Council ” was to sacrifice the glory and the honours of the pontifical office in order to better ensure the faithfulness of the Church to the Council. Although weakened by age, is his still being present in the shadow of the conclave, and then in the shadow of Saint Peter’s dome, not the best way to ensure the continuity of his successor, of preventing the dreaded rupture, the challenging of what he now calls “ the real Council ” ?
“ The regular recurrence of the same programme accustomed me to classifying the different sciences that were taught in the various parts of my mind and to pursue the conquest of the truth in several fields concurrently, not without having establishnmed relationships among them, which strengthened the perception of their coherence. ”

To revisit Vatican II fifty years later and to do so with the faith of the Church of the ages as Fr. de Nantes kept and taught it, reveals its avowed, intentional “pastoral” plan. Misunderstood by the faithful – apart from its promoters who were moreover unsatisfied with it – it consists in a “new humanism”, the aim of which is harmony among men and world peace.
