Fr. John Berg recently celebrated a Solemn Mass for the German congress, Freude am Glauben (Joy in the Faith). He went on to celebrate another Solemn Mass for the annual meeting of the German Pro Missa Tridentina association in Wiesbaden this 19 September. At this conference, Fr. Berg mentioned some interesting details of his audience with His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI in July.
"Pope Benedict XVI wishes that the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter be entrusted, beyond the celebration of Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form, at as many places as possible, with the cura animarum, i.e. the full pastoral care. ...The Holy Father was very interested in whether the Fraternity was able to exercise its apostolate without obstacles, as intended.
Perhaps they are able to 'exercise...without obstacles,' except in Milwaukee.

What do you mean re: Milwaukee?
Abp Dolan turned down FSSP in favor of ICK at St Stan's.
That's rather interesting. I can understand the preference for ICKSP (Chicago is an hour away), and ICKSP has a strong Midwest presence, and there are no FSSP parishes, to my knowledge, in Wisconsin...
I don't know how I feel about that.
Is ICKSP doing well/succeeding at St. Stan's? It seems like, from their bulletins, they are doing well, but I have no more information.
How does one define 'doing well'?
Solid/growing attendance, enough income/time being spent by parishioners, converts, etc, etc?
Wouldn't be prudent for me to converse further on the topic.
