(kreuz.net, Vatican) The most recent letter to the Society of St. Pius X from the CDF renewed its request for the General Superior of the Society, Bishop Bernard Fellay, to sign the Dogmatic Preamble.
This was according to Andrea Tornielli at 'vaticaninsider.com'.
The signature of the Preamble is a precondition for the canonical reconciliation.
Tonrielli speculates that Msgr Fellay has been playing for time up until now without breaking the dialog with the Vatican off completely.
On the contrary, the Pope wants clear conditions.
On Friday Msgr Fellay spoke for two hours with the Prefect of the Congregation for Doctrine and the Faith, Cardinal William Levada, as well as the Secretary of the Commission of Ecclesia Dei, Prelate Guido Pozzo.
Msgr Fellay was accompanied by his chief assistant, Father Alain-Marc Nely.
The Church has thrown the Traditional Faith Overboard
The Society Bishop explained, says Tornielli, that the Society has no problem signing with the initial Professio fidei -- Profession of Faith .
Additionally, it recognizes principles represented in the Preamble.
The problem consists not in the principles, rather in their application.
The Church fails in fidelity to the Magisterium -- explained Msgr Fellay, according to Tornielli.
Recognition is in the Drawer
The Vaticanist reported still further that for the Society, in case they accept the Preamble, are ready to complete an offer with a Canonical Structure of an Institute.
It would allow the Society a status of complete independence from the Bishops, which protection is enjoyed by no other traditional group.
There are Effectively Two Different Religions
Tornielli suspects that the problem with reconicliation is not in the text of the Preamble but also as a result of disunity within the Society.
The majority, inclusive of the General Superior, want unity with Rome. They recognize the primacy of the Papacy with its government as being central to the Faith.
A strong minority of the Society are against the reconciliation. They call on Rome to finally convert.
