October 15, 2009
Doctrinal talks between the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and the traditionalist Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) will begin on October 26, the Vatican has announced. The talks, aimed at ending the split between the SSPX and the Holy See, will be confidential, the Vatican press office noted.
In an indication that the traditionalist group will take a hard line regarding the authority of Vatican II teachings, Bishop Bernard Fellay, the superior of the SSPX, said: "The solution to the crisis is a return to the past."
