While Vatican II Church Collapses: New Old Rite Abbey in France

The monastery Sainte-Marie de la Garde in Saint-Pierre-de-Clairac, Southern France, has been erected as an abbey on February 13.

The community was started in 2002 by the famous Old Rite Abbey of Le Barroux. On February 18 Father Marc Guillot O.S.B., until now the prior of the monastery, was elected as the first abbot.


“I saw again the strange big church that was being built there. ... All in this church belonged to the earth, returned to the earth. All was dead, the work of human skill, a church of the latest style, a church of man’s invention like the new heterodox church in Rome.” (1820)
