Rorate Caeli

New Abbot of Fontgombault

Dom Jean Pateau, OSB, was elected today new Abbot of Our Lady of Fontgombault, that brightest of stars in the Congregatio Solesmensis, and Mother Abbey of Randol, Triors, Clear Creek, and Donezan. The Abbot Emeritus, Dom Antoine Forgeot, OSB, resigned in July after years of great deeds for Christ and His Church, for the traditions of the Roman Rite, and for the pure and original legacy of Dom Prosper Guéranger.
