|Bishop Tissier de Mallerais|
(kreuz.net) On June 30th the Pope sent a personally addressed and signed letter to the Society of St. Pius X.
This is according to Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais on 16 September in the Prior6y of the 1,200 population town Faye-d'Anjoy in the west French Department Maine-et-Loire.
The corresponding points of the report appeared transcribed in the French forum 'lefebvristes.forum-box.com'.
The Papal document was addressed to the General Superior of the Society, Bishop Bernard Fellay.
The Pope wrote within that in order for there to be possible a "complete settlement" in the Church, the Second Vatican Council and the post-Conciliar Magisterium must "really" be accepted.
"There won't be any settlement"
For Msgr Tissier the demand to recognize the Second Vatican Council is unacceptable and with it the conclusion of the discussions with the Vatican:
"We could accept it in any case."
The Pastoral Council contains many texts in which one finds good things:
"But that is not the kernel of the Council."
The Society could not sign the current proposal of the Dogmatic Preamble forthwith.
Yet Msgr Tissier believes that the Vatican will also be "stubborn" in the future to make the Pastoral Council toothsome to the Society.
