It’s Official! The SSPX excommunications are lifted!

Now, I’ve studied the SSPX quite extensively, and I do not accept some of their arguments. However, the excommunication of the SSPX has been a black mark on all traditionalists, making us all look like we’re “part of that group.”

Now it doesn’t matter. Says Cardinal Giovannie Battista, Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops:

Based on the faculty expressly granted to me by the Holy Father Benedict XVI, in
virtue of the present Decree, I remit of 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.
