Here is a series of photos taken from the Fraternity of St. Peter Website, taken in 2002 and 2003, of their mission in Nigeria. I am touched by the dedication of my fellow traditionalists in a country where folks have to struggle with the daily nessecities of life. No matter how we might bitch an moan about the state of the Church in the US, we have it easy compared to most.
