Rome and the SSPX
Long story short, from what I can gather: Rome’s offer is the SSPX would have to sign something accepting a strict-constructionist interpretation of Vatican II (religious liberty and ecumenism are OK; fine with me), which it has always required, and then the society would be a personal prelature like Opus Dei (no interference from Modernist AmChurch or Magic Circle bishops, so it would remain all-Tridentine all the time... why doesn’t the Pope get rid of the Modernist bishops?). Sounds good if it’s true. Pope Benedict obviously means it: not a double deal. He even got rid of all the serious problems with the English Novus Ordo. For those who don’t know: it was always about religious liberty and ecumenism, not Latin. We’ll see.
