From a reader…
Did you know that [SSPX] Bp. Fellay is now on the Roman Rota? A judge of the First Instance.
No. It’s not that I didn’t know that. Rather, that claim is not accurate. Bp. Fellay would be better than many choices for such a role. However, he is not “on the Rota”.
From what I have been able to discern, it is possible that Bp. Fellay was temporarily granted the ability to deal with “more grave delicts” ad causam for a priest of the SSPX.
