Fellay: SSPX readmission ‘explosive’
8 June 2012
THE SSPX Superior General has predicted that there will be an “explosion” in the Church if the Society of St Pius X (SSPX) is readmitted.
Bishop Fellay was speaking in the last week of May at a small chapel used by the SSPX in Vienna’s 7th district. In a two and a half hour address on the ongoing negotations between the Vatican and the SSPX, Bishop Fellay said that it was the personal wish of Pope Benedict XVI that the SSPX should return.
Cardinals and bishops were deeply divided on the issue, he said, and Pope Benedict had said it would be “far easier for” both himself and the Society to leave things as they were.
Bishop Fellay also gave an indication of how a return might be structured. He said it was “simply wonderful” that so many Anglicans had come over to Rome and that the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham had been formed. He hoped “something similar” would be possible for the SSPX.
