Observation of Prefect of Cong. for Bishops on SSPX excommunications

Marco Politti of La Repubblica interviewed the Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, His Eminence G.B. Card. Re.  That dicastery lifted the infamous excommunications.

There is an interesting detail in the Cardinal Prefect’s comments which will be unpopular but is exactly right.

Ma resta la questione del giudizio sulla Shoah.

«La Shoah è un fatto storico.

Il Santo Padre si è espresso sul- argomento con grande chiarezza».

Appunto. Può un vescovo rimanere ambiguo, quando il Papa è stato così netto nel condannare oblio, negazionismo e riduzionismo?

«È un fatto storico, non dottrinale».

There remains the question of judgment about the Shoah.

"The Shoah is a historic fact."

Right.  Can a bishop remain ambiguous, when the Pope was so clear in condemning forgetfulness, denial and diminishing?

"It is an historic fact, not doctrinal."
