Relevant: Archdiocese of Vaduz to celebrate Chrism Mass in the more ancient way

From the French-language website of the Confraternity of Saint Peter, the association of praying faithful attached to the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter:

Interesting and relevant news for the faithful attached to the Extraordinary Form: in a few days [Holy Thursday], Abp. Haas, Archbishop of Vaduz [Liechtenstein], will celebrate the Chrism Mass in the presence of his clergy in this same Extraordinary Form. [Editorial signed by Fr. Bizard]

It is a first for a Diocesan Ordinary since the Paul VI liturgical creations (except in the case of the Diocese of Campos, Brazil, during the tenure of Bishop Antonio de Castro Mayer, and considering the special case of the Apostolic Administration of St. John Mary Vianney, in the same city, after its establishment by John Paul II).
