Relations Between Rome and the SSPX Continue to Thaw

Edit: there are going to be people on the neo-Con side and people on the intransigent side all kinds of upset about this. When it happens in mid-September, it should prove decisively interesting.

Rome isn't batting an eye about letting this Dominican get away from her, most likely, less than conservative House to join one affiliated with the SSPX. Rome knows about

She had special permission from the Congregation for Religious and Secular Institutes in Rome to do this. As far as we know this is a world first, that a Sister would be allowed to transfer from a Novus Ordo congregation to a congregation set up by Bishop Fellay. The whole procedure implies a recognition of our Congregation, and of the religious of Tradition, by Rome.

  1. Here's a question.

    Why would the Vatican give permission to a religious to leave her community to go to another one staffed by priests who cannot validly absolve her from her sins?

    Unless, of course, a deal has already been worked out and the big announcement has still to be made.


  2. I like the logic, Veronica, Let us hope the prelates in Rome are similarly logical!
