Laurent Buchholtzer (aka Octonovo) talked about his investigation into the trafficking of Masses organized by a local Catholic network of which Berenger Sauniere would have been in league with ..... at Rennes-le-Chateau. Here it should be noted that this is not a fact but a theory that Octonovo advances. He says " My feeling is that the abbe addresses his requests for Masses to members of a large group (several hundred people). This group has no profile of an initiatory society but rather evokes a monarcho- ultra royalist movement in resistance against the rapprochement with the Republic then advocated by the Catholic hierarchy. I would see the entry of a pious union type association, an ultra-conservative group, a radical monarchist group. The fact is that this theory would explain many things. The regularity of the donations even in the absence of demand, the very low failure rate that appears to save his demands, achievements and a number of contradictions that appear at the trial, some of his achievements ... But for now I have not been able to put a name to this potential organization".
However, this group may now have been identified by Christian Doumergue - the Catholic Cercle of Narbonne, of which Sauniere's brother was an important member. Read more HERE.
