Holy Father and Cardinal Levada Deliberate Over Fate of SSPX

Cardinal Levada is with Pope Benedict XVI are a meeting.

Vatican City ( KNA) Pope Benedict XVI. is publicly in meetings with Cardinal Levada. The Pope invited the Prefect of the Congregation of Doctrine and the Faith to an audience on Friday, as the Vatican considers further steps. The main part of the discussion may have been to cover the report of his administration of the US Cardinals in their plenary meeting, at which will also be discussed the dialog with the Society of St. Pius X.

At the yearly plenary conference of the CDF from the 24th to the 27th of January the most recent answer of the Society to the "Doctrinal Preamble" of the Vatican was considered as part of the program. In this clarification which was formed on the 14th September 2011 are the result of an eighteen month long discussion of principes for the possible reunification with the Priestly Society of St. Pius X. The discussion afterward relates to the second and first answer which both require a clear adherence of Tradition to the Church's Magisterium and to the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965)

I don't know German so I can't speak to what may have been said in the article that leads to the above title - implying that this was a unique meeting between the Holy Father and Cardinal Levada to discuss the SSPX.

The Pope meets with Cdl. Levada every Friday, regardless - something the present Holy Father also did with Pope John Paul II while head of the CDF.
