I will be starting Mass in about 15 minutes as of this post.


May God the Holy Spirit soften hearts and illuminate minds.
May St. Paul, whose year we celebrate, help us all to greater unity.
May St. Peter, the Rock on whom Christ built the Church, gather us into one fold.
May St. Michael and the heavenly angels defend us from the attacks of hell.

    I checked the Z-cam. Nothing. I miss live TLMs. :-( [It sucked up my band width and not so many people could watch. If I could figure out how to do it well, I would turn it on again. – Fr. Z]

    I.Media: SSPX asks for removal of excommunications
    Agence France-Presse (AFP) publishes today the information that the Rome-based French religious news agency I.MEDIA reports that the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Pius X (FSSPX / SSPX) has asked the Holy See to lift the excommunications:

    The Priestly Fraternity of Saint Pius X has asked the Vatican to lift the excommunications pronounced against it, an Integrist [sic] organization, to display its will to dialogue, according to religious news agency I.Media.

    The Superior of the Fraternity, Bishop Bernard Fellay, sent Pope Bendict XVI a letter responding to the conditions posed by the Vatican to a reintegration of this organization, founded by schismatic [sic] bishop Marcel Lefebvre, the agency notes.

    According to an internal note of the Fraternity mentioned by I.Media, Bishop Fellay asks that the dialogue “be placed at a doctrinal level” and that he may avoid every hastiness. He underlines that “prior withdrawal of the excommunication of 1988 would favor the serenity of such a dialogue”.

    “These conditions seem to aim the achievement of a climate favorable to an ulterior dialogue rather than precise commitments on exact points,” the Priestly Fraternity considers in its note.
    It seems step one of the “One-Two-Three Strategy” is about to be completely accomplished
