Transalpine Redemptorists

I had never heard of the Transalpine Redemptorists before, but Fr Ray Blake has this clip about them.

They are a traditionalist monastic order established in 1988 on an island in Scotland as part of the SSPX faction. Happily, they have just been reconciled with the Holy See, and before long should be established as a new Catholic order.
This is part of the fruit of Benedict XVI’s ecumenical efforts. Perhaps before the end of the summer we will see some other exciting developments between Anglicans and Rome.

    I am hoping against hope! (RE:TAC-Related Announcement Post-Lambeth?)…After all, this year we have seen the reconciliation of 3000 Assyrians, and the TAR… “Benedict the Re-gatherer” may be the name that best descibes our venerable Pontiff!Exciting times!

    Wow. So are you more optimistic now on the chances of the TAC coming into communion with Rome? I seem to remember at one time you were not so sure.
