Bishop Fabian Bruskewitz of Lincoln consecrated the $14-million chapel of the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter’s seminary in Denton, Nebraska, on March 3. The Fraternity’s priests celebrate the sacraments according to the extraordinary form of the Latin liturgy.

Cardinal William Levada, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, was present at the consecration.

    Well, they can't run him out of SFO anymore, and he knows which way the wind blows in Rome.

    Cardinal Levada would appear to have changed. When he was Archbishop of San Francisco he granted no indults (back when they were required) for celebration of the Mass of 1962. I cannot vouch for the truth of the comment, but he was quoted as saying, when he was asked about it, "If I did that the priests would run me out of town."
