Confirmed: Excommunications Lifted!
“Based on the faculties expressly granted to me by the Holy Father Benedict XVI, in virtue of the present Decree, I remit from Bishops Bernard Fellay, Bernard Tissier de Mallerais, Richard Williamson, and Alfonso de Galarreta the censure of latae sententiae excommunication declared by this Congregation on July 1, 1988, while I declare deprived of any juridical effect, from the present date, the Decree emanated at that time.”
We have a truly courageous pope.
Much needed doctrinal talks will follow this Decree. Let us hope the SSPX leadership, while preserving undefiled the Catholic Faith they have received, puts away all suspicion and mistrust with respect to the Holy Father’s intentions.
