Might as well get back to planting my garden.
Below, please find Vatican Radio’s translation of the text of the communiqué released by the Press Office of the Holy See regarding the Ordinary Session of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, in connection with the Session’s consideration of the ongoing dialogue between the CDF and the Priestly Fraternity of St. Pius X (SSPX).
As anticipated by news agencies, the Ordinary Session of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith met May 16, 2012 and discussed, among other things, the issue of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Pius X (SSPX).
In particular, the Session considered the text of the reply of His Excellency Bishop Bernard Fellay, received April 17, 2012. A few observations were formulated, which shall be taken into consideration in further discussions between the Holy See and the SSPX.
In view of the positions taken by the three other bishops of the SSPX, their situation must be treated separately and individually.
