Remembering Dom Gerard Calvet, OSB

Today is the funeral of Dom Gerard Calvet, founder of the post-conciliar traditional Benedictine movement. He was a good man, and it was because of his loyalty to the Church and the traditional liturgy that traditional Catholics now feel at home in the Church. I hope the Church will one day find him worthy of canonization.

That being said, it was an honour to write his obituary for LifeSite News and The Washington Times:

- Renowned French Pro-Life Abbott Dies at Age 80

- Calvet, 80, mourned in France
