“The path of reconciliation between the FSSPX and the Holy See has been pursued persistently since 2009, albeit gradually and at different stages. Today we can say that the rapprochement has progressed a lot, and we can be confident that the rupture will soon be overcome with the canonical recognition of the Fraternity in the legal form of a Personal Prelature.”
“I think it is clear that the possible acquisition of a governing church or a church in Rome by the SSPX presupposes full reconciliation and formal legal recognition by the Holy See.”
“The problem then is not the Vatican II Council as such, but a certain form of understanding, practice or application , which is called the ‘spirit of the council.’ Pope Benedict XVI spoke of a ‘true council’ and a ‘virtual council’, the latter being the fruit of the power of mass media, the modernist current in theology, in other words, has eclipsed the authentic ‘mens’ [Latin: mind] of the council fathers.”
“On the other hand, the preservation of the spiritual, theological, liturgical, disciplinary and pastoral identities of the priestly brotherhood [FSSPX] is guaranteed by a special law with its corresponding statutes. There are no fixed time limits. Let us entrust ourselves to the intercession and maternal support of Our Lady of Fatima, whose hundredth anniversary we are celebrating this year.”
- Yesterday, Francis managed to spit into the faces: of Our Lord, of the Blessed Ever Virgin Mary, of past popes, and of the entire Church.
