Bishop Fellay, the superior of the Society of St. Pius X, said that it would be difficult to reach doctrinal consensus with the pope, reports AP. One gets the impression that Fellay feels that church will soon be brought to greater doctrinal clarity and Benedict will finally see the light, thanks to the SSPX. Here’s the AP story:
"Certainly one has the impression that he [Benedict] is near us on the question of the liturgy," he said. "On the other hand, he is deeply attached to the new things of Vatican II."
Fellay said there was too much ambiguity in the conclusions of the groundbreaking, 1962-65 ecumenical council.
"Let’s hope now that the work brings to the whole church a greater doctrinal clarity," he said.
