Petition Supporting Benedict XVI Reaches 38000 Signatures and Receives Public Support of Three French Bishops

The NLM's French correspondent, Philippe Guy, recently made mention of an online petition that originated in France but which has spread internationally, which seeks to give vocal support to the actions of Pope Benedict XVI in relation to the SSPX. (The text of the letter is available on the site and is available in a variety of languages.)

While the site has only been up for a very short time, it has already reached, at the time of this being written, 38000 signatures.

This letter now also includes the public support of three members of the French hierarchy including, Bishop Dominique Rey of Fréjus-Toulon, Bishop André Fort of Orléans, and Bishop Marc Aillet of Bayonne, Lescar and Oloron.

The petition may still be signed, so if you haven't please take a few minutes from your day to do so, and make sure to send this news around to your friends and family, encouraging them to do likewise. Your name and information will be kept private.
