At the beginning of July I took the opportunity of a few days retreat and prayer whilst attending the ordinations of some of my friends who are members of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest.
The Institute has its seminary at Gricigliano in Florence. The main ceremonies of the 'ordination week' take place at the church in the centre of Florence. It was whilst at the ordinations I had the pleasure of meeting his Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke.
From a previous post you will recall that I have also become an affiliate priest of the Institute. At a ceremony that took place in the ceremony chapel I received the Cross of St Francis de Sales from the Prior General of the Institute, Monsignor Gilles Wach.
