CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis reportedly told French bishops that all priests—including those who belong to institutes dedicated to the traditional Latin liturgy—should be required to concelebrate the Chrism Mass with the local bishop.

Archbishop Eric de Moulins d’Amieu de Beaufort of Reims, the president of the French episcopal conference, reported that the Pope made this statement during an audience with the French hierarchy.

Last year Archbishop Roland Minnerath of Dijon ousted priests of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter from his archdiocese, explaining that they had declined to concelebrate the Chrism Mass. (Archbishop Minnerath retired early this year, having reached the age limit of 75.)
