CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Luc Crepy of Marseilles has authorized the celebration of the traditional Latin Mass in a chapel in suburban Paris, ending a two-year stalemate during which the Mass was celebrated outdoors on the chapel’s steps.

Traditionalist Catholics had organized the Mass at the front steps of the Saint-Germain hospital chapel in 2020 after they were told that no church would be available for them. The diocese has now announced that the Mass will be celebrated inside the chapel on Sundays and feast days, as “a way of pacification to put an end to a long-standing and painful situation on both sides.”
