Bishop Nicolas Brouwet's Mellifluous Latin

Watching His Excellency Bishop Brouwet of the diocese of Tarbes et Lourdes say Mass today at Lourdes, his Latin chant of the Roman Canon was extraordinarily beautiful. A member of the Community of Saint John, he is a friend of the Traditional Mass and says it himself!

Not a surprise that he was a direct appointment of Pope Benedict XVI.

He was appointed Bishop of Tarbes and Lourdes February 11, 2012, on the occasion of the feast of Our Lady of Lourdes.Vatican expert Sandro Magister commenting that the appointment was the personal choice of Pope Benedict XVI and the Prefect of Congregation for Bishops , the Cardinal Ouellet , who did not consult the other members of the congregation.
