Today, on the first day of the General Chapter of the Society of Saint Pius X, The Rev. Fr. Davide Pagliarani, a native of Italy, to be the new Superior General of the Society, for a term of twelve years. Fr. Pagliarani, 47, was ordained in 1996 by his outgoing predecessor, Bishop Bernard Fellay, and most recently served as the rector of the Society's Spanish-speaking seminary in Le Reja, Argentina. Fr. Pagliarani took the Anti-Modernist Oath before accepting his election. (Source: FSSPX.news email)
The choice of Fr. Pagliarani, a younger priest with an extensive leadership and academic background, will hopefully rejuvenate the SSPX for the next decade to counter-attack against the Novus Ordo's failed (generally-speaking) New Evangelization.
The rumors that Bishop Fellay did not want to get re-elected Superior General are now true. At 60 years old, there are several, but one major U.S. archdiocese that could most certainly use him just to save the local church there...(Any guesses?)
Regardless of what happens, if Bishop Fellay gets his own diocese, he most certainly deserves it!
