A last chance for the SSPX?
Plus: the SSPX in the heart of the Pope's frustration

http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2013/02...px-in.html

Rorate can independently confirm the report --hinted at just now in Le Forum Catholique -- that the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith has sent a letter with a final offer to the Society of Saint Pius X (FSSPX / SSPX): resume the dialogue with the Holy See by February 22, or else the Holy See will make an offer of reconciliation and full communion to individual SSPX priests. (What kind of offer or structural basis will be offered is unclear.)

We can only wonder how things would be like if dissenting liberal theological faculties and the individual heretics teaching in them were approached by the CDF with the same diligence and focus.

In other news: Mons. George Ratzinger highlights two events that deeply pained the Pope in his pontificate. These events may not have directly caused the resignation, but they certainly inflicted great bitterness on the heart of His Holiness, in his brother's opinion. They were the Vatican leaks scandal and relations with the Society of Saint Pius X [. . .]

Huh?

What would be the point?  They would've joined the FSSP if they were willing to compromise themselves for Rome's approval.
Carpe diem. The next pope may not be so generous.
What if the abdication was basically an "all in" power play designed to force the hand of the SSPX?  Sort of an "I'm all in now pal, and you're on a real short clock.  In or out for good. Tick, tock..."

If so, "grow a pair" just got a new gold standard.  He fell on his sword for them.
Well, the demand is only that they resume dialogue. Perhaps the Holy Father is worried that his successor will not be as committed to reconciliation and so he wants to make sure that dialogue is reestablished before he leaves.

This.

It's a pointless threat.  Oh, shape up or we'll let your priests come to us.  Well, if they wanted to, they could, via the FSSP.
