Card. Sarah Visits the Monastère Saint Benoît

This past weekend, the Monastère Saint Benoît in La Garde-Freinet, France (diocese of Fréjus-Toulon), welcomed Robert Card. Sarah, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship, for the celebration of Pontifical Mass on the feast of St Matthew, and the presentation of his latest book, The Day is Now Far Spent. On Sunday, His Eminence attended and preached at a solemn Mass on the feast of the dedication of the cathedral of Fréjus, followed by solemn Vespers in the evening. Our thanks to the prior, Dom Alcuin Reid, for sharing these photographs with us; the complete set can be seen at the monastery’s Facebook page.
