Today the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter celebrates the 20 anniversary of its canonical erection as a society of apostolic life of pontifical right by His Holiness of happy memory, Pope John Paul II. It began humbly with 11 priests and 1 deacon.
Today they are 300+ members strong with two packed seminaries – one in Austria and one in Nebraska.

“Who would have thought that this small group of traditional, Latin rite priests would so quickly grow to over 300 members working and studying on 5 continents in the 17 different countries serving over 85 dioceses … and then become THE main force for the implementation of a papal decree expressly promoting the return of the traditional Latin Mass, now known as the “extraordinary form” of the Roman missal, as well as all the sacraments and devotions that go along with it?” (from: http://www.fssp.com/main/News071019.htm)

From The Jewish Chronicle:
In the draft of an address to be delivered tomorrow, Rabbi Winer says that “expressions of Jewish anger” over the prayer “have reached a level I do not recall in my lifetime of dialogue, as a rabbi, with the Catholic Church. Rabbinical bodies in some countries have forbidden their rabbis from participating in dialogue with representatives of the Holy See. Antisemitic riots and incidents have occurred in more than a few places.”
Rabbi Winer, where did these riots occur?
Give me a break.
