You know about the dust up over the upcoming SSPX ordinations scheduled in Germany, and the Holy See’s tisk-tick press release.
I have had a few conversations about these things lately.
There is some suggestion flowing to me from different sources, whom I cannot name, that SSPX Bishop Bernard Fellay may be prepared to accept some sort of "provisional status".
Soon after the excommunications were lifted, Bp. Fellay seems to have refused to sign a document asking for the lifting also of the suspensions.
If this is true, I can understand why that would be, in light of the problems brewing in Germany.
For some background…
We all know that the SSPX leadership wants to resolve doctrinal issues before the canonical. However, given the new exigencies, perhaps some provisional or transitional status could help advance the rapprochement.
This is a good time to offer some prayers and ask the guardian angels of all involved to help them come to a good solution, soon.
