The new bishop of Tarbes and Lourdes

Others (here, and here with particular reference to Mgr Brouwet's mission as auxiliary of Nanterre, and here, praising a friend of "Tradition") have commented on the appointment of Mgr Nicholas Brouwet to be the next Bishop of the diocese of Lourdes and Tarbes.

The CV provided on the announcement ends with the following:
È membro dell’Institut Saint-Jean (Johannesgemeinschaft) fondato dal teologo Hans Urs von Balthasar. [He is a member of the Institute of St John founded by the theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar.]
This is something at least as interesting and full of potential in connection with Mgr Brouwet's ministry in respect of  Lourdes. How will the influence of Adrienne von Speyr and Hans Urs von Balthasar be apparent?
