One dead, two missing after avalanche in Switzerland.

This is about the seminarians. Too sad that not even Le Monde reports that the missing and the dead are seminarians of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX). Why not? Maybe they do not know yet.

Keep praying for the two missing seminarians.

Sometimes I am angry at God, like a child. But I guess we may also confide that we might have an extra pro-SSPX advocate in heaven now.

They were hiking in the mountains. Ecône is near Riddes and Sion in the canton of Valais in Switzerland, amidst famous ski resorts and luxurious winter sport facilities and hotels. The seminary of the Immaculate Heart itself is almost a bit up the mountains, and close to woods and peaks.
