Italian Archbishop Welcomes SSPX

Archbishop Lorenzo Ghizzoni
The French newsletter Riposte Catholique is reporting that Italian Archbishop Lorenzo Ghizzoni of Ravenna and Cervia has authorized a priest of the SSPX to celebrate two Holy Masses on the first and second Sunday of October in his diocese. Once a bitter enemy of all who desired the traditional Mass, Archbishop Lorenzo recently invited Fr. Enrico Doria (SSPX), priest of the Priory Madonna di Loreto, to celebrate the Extraordinary Form with an eye towards satisfying the demands of a stable group of faithful who have been consistently requesting the traditional Mass. Prima Pagina Reggio's Andrea Zambrano suggests that the change of heart is due in large part to Pope Francis' decision to grant the priest of the Society of St. Pius X faculties to validly and licitly absolve from sins during the 'Year of Mercy', set to begin December 8th. It is hoped that the welcome signals a period of increased cooperation between diocesan bishops and the Society.


It really is baffling how the most "progressive" types, people who outright deny some basic Catholic dogmas, are allowed to carry on while the SSPX is so often treated so horribly (and I write this as someone who is not "an SSPXer"; I've never attended a Mass offered by the Fraternity). News of any move toward the SSPX on the part of those who have jurisdiction should be totally celebrated. Thanks be to God!
