Vatican-SSPX Talks: Pope’s Answer Delivered Today
On the usual Rorate Caeli, the news that is not really news, but rather the anticipation of (hopefully) The Great News.
I personally cannot imagine the doctrinal declaration has been altered again, for the simple reason that I cannot imagine either Bishop Fellay officially delivering the text without unofficial assurances the Pope is in agreement with it, or the Pope indicating that he agrees with the text and then trying to strong-arm the Bishop.
Therefore, I can only think the last waiting phase will be a formality, perhaps used by Fellay to fly back and have a chat with the other three musketeers, and perhaps even prepare a common declaration? But I am dreaming now…
Therefore, even if some days will be apparently needed before the official announcement, I suggest everyone to do what I will do myself: set aside a very good bottle, and wait with confidence.
P.s. Mind, I am the born optimist and this has cost me more than one disappointment in the past…
