Cardinal Burke's 19 Point Response to Traditionis Custodes
(07-23-2021, 09:37 AM)ChairmanJoeAintMyPresident Wrote: Point 10 disputes the lie that Benedict wrote SP solely to bring the SSPX back into a regular status:

"In the book, Last Testament in his own words, Pope Benedict XVI responded to the affirmation, “The reauthorization of the Tridentine Mass is often interpreted primarily as a concession to the Society of Saint Pius X,” with these clear and strong words: “This is just absolutely false! It was important for me that the Church is one with herself inwardly, with her own past; that what was previously holy to her is not somehow wrong now” (pp. 201-202)."

 I wouldn't say that it was "solely" on account of the SSPX but that was one of the requests made by SSPX leadership to continue doctrinal discussions. If that wasn't at least in the mind of Benedict, then it's awfully coincidental.
