Today the German SSPX published an article in its monthly bulletin on Bishop Huonder.
It is not yet on the net but only on the paper version (which can be found digitally on their website)https://fsspx.de/sites/sspx/files/mb_2019-03-03_d_web.pdf
"The report that Vitus Huonder would retire to Wangs after his time as Bishop of Chur is correct, says spokesman Bishop Giuseppe Gracia this Tuesday at the Sarganserländer, which is confirmed by a report from Die Ostschweiz
. "This step is linked to the mandate of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in Rome to Bishop Vitus Huonder, to maintain contact with the Society of Saint Pius X," explained the bishop's spokesman. The institute in which Huonder will spend the rest of his life belongs to the Priestly Fraternity of St. Pius X, which is considered conservative. The 76-year-old Bishop Huonder is expected to resign from his position as Bishop of Chur in April. He had already offered his resignation to the Pope in the spring of 2017 for reasons of age. The Pope had given his consent, but only at Easter of the current year. The Sancta Maria Institute, the secondary school for boys with boarding school in Wangs, Switzerland, will welcome a new important resident after Easter: Bishop Vitus Huonder. The bishop leaving Chur will retire there. On 23 January 2019, the newspaper "Sargansländer" published an article by Denise Allig, which can be printed here in a slightly abridged version. Father Firmin Suter, director of the Sancta Maria Institute and priest of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Pius X since 2006, expressed yesterday, upon request, his joy at the arrival of Bishop Huonder on behalf of the entire community. "Yes, it is a great joy and a special honour for all of us," said Father Firmin.Bishop Huonder had already introduced himself to the students and won their sympathy, because he was a bishop with an open and frank heart," explains Father Suter. "It's great to be able to offer a house to such a bishop. "they never dared to dream about it.
"When Bishop Vitus Huonder first contacted us, we wondered about the possible reason for his call," the priest continued. "In a personal conversation, he expressed a desire to spend the rest of his life with us. »
Modest wishes for the new home.
Bishop Huonder has not expressed any requests for his new home.
"His only wish was to be able to move into a room in our institute where there was room for a desk and a shelf," says Father Suter. Of course, it has a small bedroom with bathroom and a bedroom as an office.
No TV or Internet available.
How will Huonder's future house be equipped? "Bishop Huonder's office has a balcony. Television and Internet access are not provided. I think he would rather spend a few hours in front of the Blessed Sacrament in the chapel than in front of a screen," explains Father Firmin. On the future of Bishop Huonder's life, he said that the Fraternity is a priestly association with a community life: "Our priests cultivate common prayer, liturgy,
common meals and also exchanges on all kinds of subjects". Normally, Bishop Huonder's day in the future will look like this:
6:15 Prime, 6:40: Holy Mass
, 7:30 Breakfast, 12:15 Sexte, after lunch, 18:30: Rosary, after dinner, 20:30: complies.
In between, he will find plenty of time for study, prayer, contemplation and conversation. Father Suter also pointed out that the times of adoration in the Fatima chapel were public. "Those who want to experience a Latin Mass can gladly come."
1) Which Mass will the bishop be saying?
2) Will there be any Novus Ordo Masses said by the bishop (who has no problem saying them today)?
3) If so, who will be serving them? Or attending them?
4) Regardless of the rite, will this bishop be giving what may or may not be holy Communion (i.e., the bishop was not consecrated in the traditinal rite of episcopal consecration).
5) Have the faithful already received sacraments (?) at the hands of this bishop(?)?
