COMMUNIQUÉ OF THE PONTIFICAL COMMISSION "ECCLESIA DEI"

    On Monday 26 October 2009 in the Palazzo del Sant'Uffizio, headquarters of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and of the Pontifical Commission "Ecclesia Dei", the study commission made up of experts from "Ecclesia Dei" and from the Society of St. Pius X held its first meeting, with the aim of examining the doctrinal differences still outstanding between the Society and the Apostolic See.

    In a cordial, respectful and constructive climate, the main doctrinal questions were identified. These will be studied in the course of discussions to be held over coming months, probably twice a month. In particular, the questions due to be examined concern the concept of Tradition, the Missal of Paul VI, the interpretation of Vatican Council II in continuity with Catholic doctrinal Tradition, the themes of the unity of the Church and the Catholic principles of ecumenism, the relationship between Christianity and non-Christian religions, and religious freedom. The meeting also served to specify the method and organisation of the work.

Well, they're definitely asking the right questions.

I pretty much had that list pegged before the meetings even started. What impressed me is that they will be meeting twice a month - a great timetable. It gives enough time for tempers to cool down but not concrete to set.

It would be nice if Fatima was also discussed, but that is not "doctrinal".

That would be too distracting from the issue. When they are fully armed and operational, then they can bring that up.

Hopefully this will all turn out well.
