The Vatican on Friday told an ultra-traditionalist Roman Catholic splinter group they must accept non-negotiable doctrinal principles within a month or risk a painful break with Rome that would have "incalculable" consequences.

I never have understood why the SSPX plays "footsie" with the devil.

SSPX's reply to Doctrinal Preamble



3-16-2012

Vatican City, March 16, 2012 (VIS) Given below is the text of a communiqué relating to the Society of St. Pius X, released this morning by the Holy See Press Office.

During the meeting of September 14, 2011 between Cardinal William Levada, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and president of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, and Bishop Bernard Fellay, superior general of the Society of St. Pius X, the latter was presented with a Doctrinal Preamble, accompanied by a Preliminary Note, as a fundamental basis for achieving full reconciliation with the Apostolic See. This defined certain doctrinal principles and criteria for the interpretation Catholic doctrine, which are necessary to ensure faithfulness to the Church Magisterium and sentire cum Ecclesia.

The response of the Society of St. Pius X to the aforesaid Doctrinal Preamble, which arrived in January 2012, was examined by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith before being submitted to the Holy Father for his judgment. Pursuant to the decision made by Pope Benedict XVI, Bishop Fellay was, in a letter delivered today, informed of the evaluation of his response. The letter states that the position he expressed is not sufficient to overcome the doctrinal problems which lie at the foundation of the rift between the Holy See and the Society of St. Pius X.

At the end of today's meeting, moved by concern to avoid an ecclesial rupture of painful and incalculable consequences, the superior general of the Society of St. Pius X was invited to clarify his position in order to be able to heal the existing rift, as is the desire of Pope Benedict XVI.

What's really good is that both sides recognise that they don't agree on things that are fundamental requirements for membership in their respective organisations. The SSPX knows that it cannot accept the doctrines of Vatican II and remain Catholic; the Vatican knows that it cannot give up those doctrines and continue the Vatican II revolution - it would have to start a new one instead. :)

I agree, John. On the other hand, it seems to me that whatever will be the outcome of negotiations the position of the SSPX will be incompatible with Catholic doctrine. If there will be agreement, the SSPX will be one of many realities inside the modernist cauldron. If instead there will be not agreement, it will remain - and it will become increasingly - a little church ("une petite église").
