More SSPX updates

See them all here:http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2012/04/communique-from-general-house-of.html

Communiqué of the Pontifical Commission “Ecclesia Dei”

The text of the response of His Excellency Bp. Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Pius X, requested during the meeting in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith of March 16, 2012, was delivered on April 17, 2012. This text will be examined by the Dicastery and submitted afterwards to the judgment of the Holy Father.

Communiqué of the General House of the Society of Saint Pius X

The media are announcing that Bishop Bernard Fellay has sent a “positive response” to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and that consequently the doctrinal question between the Holy See and the Society of St. Pius X is now resolved.

The reality is different.

In a letter dated April 17, 2012, the Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X responded to the request for clarification that had been made to him on March 16 by Cardinal William Levada concerning the Doctrinal Preamble delivered on September 14, 2011. As the press release dated today [April 17] from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith indicates, the text of this response “will be examined by the dicastery then submitted to the Holy Father for his judgment”.

This is therefore a stage and not a conclusion.

    I wonder what sees will see an increase in Latin Masses with this turn of events. Also, I read that the SSPX has seen a mushrooming of men wanting to be seminarians for that order.

    Today I got some disturbing news. I found out the current prefect of the Congregation For The Doctrine of The Faith, Archbishops Muller, has concluded talks with the SSPX. As much as I found Cardinal Levada a modernist quack, he was better than this could! I, who found out this on Father Zuhlsdorf’s blog, hope the Holy Father removes him and replaces him with a more loyal prelate.
