"With God and Jesus Christ excluded from political life,with authority derived not from God but from man,the very basis of that authority has been taken away,because the chief reason of the distinction between ruler and subject has been eliminated.The result is that human society is tottering to its fall, because it has no longer a secure and solid foundation." (Pope Pius XI in Quas Primas, December 11, 1925)
More than one thousand faithful gathered at the new home of St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary on Friday, November 4th, to celebrate the blessing of the recently built house of formation. With the Superior General, Bishop Fellay, several district superiors, and dozens of priests, this joyous today for Tradition in America began, as is fitting, with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
In the sermon, His Excellency explained how a building this noble and grand helps the formation of the future priests. By reflecting the attributes of the eternal and majestic God, the architecture leads to an interior silence and reminds souls that their vocation is not a normal one!
After a catered lunch, Fr. Yves le Roux, the Rector, thanked those who made such a work possible: the benefactors, the workers, the volunteers, and all those who have prayed and sacrificed to make this work possible.
