I believe the below article was translated into Spanish, but I haven't seen it in English.
This was the same year as Gelis was assaulted.
It was also a time of anti-clericalism in France. ... m.r=rennes

Les pretres continuent à croire que la loi n'est pas faite pour eux.
Malgré l'arrêté municipal interdisant les manifestations exterieures du culte, le curé de Rennes-le-Chateau (Aude) n'en a pas moins voulu faire la procession de Saint-Marc.
Quand le garde-champêtre, chargé de l'execution de l'arrèté s'est présente pour faire rentrer la procession dans l'église, le curé lui a répondu qu'il pouvait verbaliser à son aise, et il a continué la procession.
Procès-verbal a été dressé immédiatement et transmis au procureur de la République à Limoux.

A rough English translation (I apologies in advance to the Francophone members of the forum):

Priests continue to believe that the law is not made for them.
Despite the law prohibiting external manifestations of worship, the priest of Rennes-le-Chateau (Aude) has not wanted to follow this order, with the procession of St. Mark.
When the constable in charge of the execution of the order was present to re-direct the procession back into the church, the priest told him he could calm down/shut up, and continued the procession.
Minutes were drawn up immediately and sent to the prosecutor in Limoux.

The Spectator archive, 1881: ... -in-france

Has some background on the politics of the period.
