SSPX offered personal prelature? June 15, 2012Posted by tantamergo in disaster, episcopate, General Catholic, Holy suffering, Latin Mass, Papa, persecution, SSPX.
When I read this last night, I recoiled. I’m not sure why. Perhaps I was really pinning my hopes on an ordinariate. It is assumed the only option to “signing” is schism. Something about this prelature just has alarm bells going off in my head, though. Too much influence from modernist bishops is possible under this arrangement.
On the afternoon of Wednesday 13 June, Cardinal William Levada, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and president of the Pontifical Commission ‘Ecclesia Dei’, met with Bishop Bernard Fellay, superior general of the Society of St. Pius X who was accompanied by an assistant. Also present at the encounter were Archbishop Luis Ladaria S.J., secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and Msgr. Guido Pozzo, secretary of the Pontifical Commission ‘Ecclesia Dei’”, according to a communique released today by the Holy See Press Office.
“The purpose of the meeting was to present the Holy See’s evaluation of the text submitted in April by the Society of St. Pius X in response to the Doctrinal Preamble which the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith had presented to the Society on 14 September 2011. The subsequent discussion offered an opportunity the provide the appropriate explanations and clarifications. For his part, Bishop Fellay illustrated the current situation of the Society of St. Pius X and promised to make his response known within a reasonable lapse of time.
“Also during the meeting, a draft document was submitted proposing a Personal Prelature as the most appropriate instrument for any future canonical recognition of the Society.
I know yesterday I was all like “the Holy Ghost ain’t about no schism,” but today I’m……indifferent. I suddenly got a bad feeling about all this.
