Father Bonneterre, RIP

In your charity please pray for the eternal rest of the soul of Father Didier Bonneterre, a priest of the Society of St. Pius X, who died in the morning of September 15. Father had a car accident when he was returning to Paris after visiting his elderly mother. She has now lost all of her three sons, and she could use your prayers as well.

Born in 1954, Father Bonneterre entered the seminary in 1972. Professor of liturgy at Econe, then first rector of the Seminary of Albano, Rome, then prior for 22 years at Nantes, he had been prior of St. Germaine's Priory in Paris for a number of years.

He had said some time ago that he wanted to die on a feast of the Blessed Mother. He was taken from us on the feast of the Seven Sorrows of Our Lady.

He is the author of The Liturgical Movement:
