Read on Rorate Caeli the always intelligent considerations as to where the SSPX is in respect to the talks with Rome, and how this position is perfectly coherent with what Archbishop Lefebvre always did.
I found the last lines of particular interest:
The ball is on Rome’s court, where the Pope […] can, simply with his signature, confer the widest prerogatives to the work directed by the Swiss prelate from the Valais. He can eventually acknowledge this recent thesis that defended, in Rome, that, “the authority of the magisterium of Vatican II is that of a homily in the 1960s.” Had not he himself affirmed that the Council “deliberately chose to remain on a modest level, as a merely pastoral council”?
Words of wisdom, I think, and after 50 years of folly perhaps it is high time to go back to the sanity of the Church as she was understood these last two thousand years.
