Bishop Gainer Interview on the TLM and Vocations

Back in May, we posted an item about a new Carmel which has been founded in Fairfield, Pennsylvania, in the diocese of Harrisburg, which uses the traditional Mass and Office, and is undergoing a surge in vocations. Last month, on the feast of St James the Apostle, His Excellency Ronald Gainer, the bishop of Harrisburg, celebrated a Pontifical High Mass in the Extraordinary Form to officially open the monastery and bless the new buildings, still, as you will see, very much under construction. After the Mass, he gave this interview in which he speaks among other things of the traditional liturgy as a powerful source of religious vocations. For more information about the Fairfield Carmel, see their website here: We thank and congratulate Bishop Gainer for his support of this important initiative, and pray that it will bear much fruit for the Church in his diocese.
