Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais ordained 3 new deacons and 5 priests at the SSPX's seminary in Zaitzkofen, Germany, on Saturday, June 28th, the Vigil of the Apostles Sts. Peter and Paul.
During his sermon Bishop TIssier explained the great dignity of the priest. He quoted numerous texts of saints and popes and showed how the seminary curriculum aims at forming holy priests. He then called upon the priestly candidates to sanctify themselves in order to do justice to this great dignity.
The day before, on the Feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, Bishop Alfonso de Galarreta had ordained 9 new priests at the Econe Seminary. All together 20 new priests were ordained for the Society during this month of June.
