Brief SSPX statement on talks with Holy See

Catholic World News - July 12, 2012

The Society of St. Pius X has issued a brief statement on the discussions between the Holy See and Bishop Bernard Fellay, its superior general.

“The General Chapter of the Society of St. Pius X opened Monday, July 9, 2012, at the seminary of Econe (Switzerland), and will continue until Saturday, July 14,” the statement noted. “In the present context, following the response of Cardinal William Levada, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, on June 14, 2012, this chapter will permit the Superior General, Bishop Bernard Fellay, to make known the state of relations of the Society of St. Pius X with Rome, and obtain feedback from the capitularies on this subject.”

“Discussions are being conducted in a fraternal atmosphere, marked by cordiality.”
