My dear brethren

The meeting of the Society’s superiors took place at Albano on 7-8th October as announced in last month’s newsletter, and Bishop Fellay did indeed use this opportunity to discuss the ‘Doctrinal Preamble’ text as received from Cardinal Levada on 14th September.

The first day of the meeting covered three issues: an overview of the contacts with Rome since 1987; a summary of the doctrinal discussions; and an oral exposition of the Doctrinal Preamble document itself.

With regard to the doctrinal talks it was disappointing to note that the Roman commission failed to acknowledge the break between traditional and conciliar teachings.
Instead it insisted upon the ‘hermeneutic (interpretation) of continuity,’ stating that the new teachings included and improved the old!

It was interesting to learn that the 14th September meeting had not touched upon the doctrinal talks at all, but rather was dedicated to expounding possible practical solutions for the Society.

So it was perhaps not surprising to learn that the proposed doctrinal basis for any canonical agreement in fact contained all those elements which the Society has consistently rejected, including acceptance of the New Mass and of Vatican II as expressed in the New Catechism.
Indeed, the document itself conveys the impression that there is no crisis in the Church...

Hence the stated consensus of those in attendance was that the Doctrinal Preamble was clearly unacceptable and that the time has certainly not come to pursue any practical agreement as long as the doctrinal issues remain outstanding.
It also agreed that the Society should continue its work of insisting upon the doctrinal questions in any contacts with the Roman authorities.

In many ways we can see the hand of Providence in this meeting, falling as it did on the Feast of the Holy Rosary, given the clarification of Rome’s persistence in the modern errors, and the consequent necessity of continuing with the fight against modernism through fidelity to Catholic Tradition.

Would value your opinion as to why you say this.

Just a hunch.

Eh, I'm really disappointed. I was hoping that they could be regularized without having to accept the legitimacy of the New Mass or Vatican II in its totality. I can understand why they wouldn't sign any doctrinal statement that required them to accept that. On the other hand it was mentioned that the doctrinal preamble is up for discussion and revision, so maybe we shouldn't jump to conclusions until Bp. Fellay makes an official announcement.
". . . stating that the new teachings included and improved the old!"

Modernist delusions of grandeur, indeed.

Catholic teaching can't be improved upon; it is perfect as it is. It can only be explained and clarified, which the past 2000 years before Vatican II did quite well--back when Catholics actually knew what the Church taught.

Explication of Catholic teaching is best accomplished through clear, straightforward, unapologetic presentations of what those teachings actually are without any back-and-forth or cowardly ambiguity.

The Holy Ghost doesn't guide the Church backward.

Of course you're not shocked. You've been warning us that it was a trap all along.  :)
So the SSPX will likely not regularize. Well, that's hardly surprising. They really have no interest in regularizing, and likely never will, IMO.
