No Settlement With the SSPX

The stated terms which were personally addressed by Pope Benedict XVI -- as the Pope well knows -- unacceptable to the Society. 
Bishop Tissier de Mallerais

( 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 ''.

The Terms

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.

Bishop Fellay Will Miss Fulda Pilgrimage this Year

The General Superior of the Society of St. Pius X can't come to the most important yearly event of the German District.  Was he expected in the Vatican?

(, Fulda)  Bishop Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Pristly Society of St. Pius X was expected to participate in this year's Fulda pilgrimage of the German district.

This was reported by the site ''.  The yearly pilgrimage of the German District has taken place nine times.

This year it is being held under the motto, "The Church -- our joy, our love, our pride".

The pilgrimage will renew the consecration of Germany to the Mother of God.

Is he being drawn to Rome?

Msgr Fellay has refused by reason of "other important obligations".

It is unclear which short term meeting is more important than the most important annual event of the German District.

The Bishop Celebrates in the Hotel

Instead of the General Superior, the French Society Bishop Tissier de Mallerais will appear instead.

He has proven himself an opponent of a diplomatic solution being reached without clarification of the dogmatic questions.

Msgr. De Mallerais is to celebrate the Mass in the large feast hall of the Orangerie in Fulda.

The celebration in a Fulda church would clearly not be allowed by the Old Liberal Bishop Heinz Josef Algermissen.
