Bishop of Tarbes and Lourdes at ICKSP pilgrimage

Bishop Nicolas Brouwet, the new Bishop of Tarbes and Lourdes, celebrated Mass at Rocamadour according to the usus antiquior for the annual Pilgrimage of St Louis made by the Institute of Christ the King, Sovereign Priest.

In the above photo (for which, many thanks to a correspondent) Bishop Brouwet is flanked by ICKSP canons and Mgr Wach in the courtyard at Rocamadour outside the basilica. The rector of Rocamadour, diocesan priest Father Ronan de Gouvello, welcomed Mgr Brouwet and presented him with a sportelle (pilgrim's badge) and a copy of the book of the Miracles of Rocamadour.

I went to Rocamadour on pilgrimage in 2004 and took photos. I have uploaded some to a new Rocamadour Flickr set. Here are a couple of examples:
