As usual our friends at Rorate are on top of all things SSPX. I read on their site:
SSPX Benelux District Superior: Abp. Lefebvre “would have accepted a canonical recognition”
As a good “soldier of Christ”, who knew that he would have to one day render account to God of his episcopate, Abp. Lefebvre kept on in “the good fight” of Christ. Was he chased like a bandit? He nonetheless “followed his course”, perfectly aware that he was in the Church. He expected that one day Rome would grant him that canonical stature of which he had been unjustly deprived, but not to the detriment of the faith, or of its full and free proclamation.
He who, amidst the complete conciliar debacle, had enjoyed for a decade the official blessing of the Church would have accepted, “without any bitterness”, and without any compromise, a canonical recognition, even coming from an authority still strongly tainted by modern errors, but willing to correct the course of the great boat of the Church, “taking in water on every side”.
Yesterday I posted that the SSPX German District Superior said that Benedict was showing pastoral care and they were grateful.
Brick by brick, friends.

Benedict XVI is the Pope of Christian Unity.
