Pope speaks on relations with the Society of Saint Pius X

VERY IMPORTANT: Pope speaks on relations with the Society of Saint Pius X

Posted by New Catholic at 5/13/2017

It was on his airplane interview during the flight back from Portugal to Rome:

“I would avoid any kind of triumphalism, absolutely. A few days ago,the Feria IV of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith — we call it Feria IV because this group meets on Wednesdays – studied a document. And the document has not yet been finished. I have studied the document. Otherwise, current relations are fraternal. Last year, I granted them permission for Confession. I have also granted them a kind of jurisdiction for marriages. But before any of those, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith dealt with all problems of its competence and that had to be solved. For instance, abuses: [cases of] abuses among them were referred to us. The same for the [Tribunal of the] Penitentiary and the reduction to lay state of a priest. There are fraternal relations. I have a good rapport with Bp. Fellay. We have spoken a few times. I do not wish to rush things. It is necessary to walk, walk, walk…and then we’ll see. For me, it’s not a matter of winners and losers, but of brethren who must walk together in search of the formula that allows them to take a step forward.”
