Rorate Caeli: Many FI priests petitioning to be relieved of pontifical vows
#25
Forgive me if I am utterly wrong here, but I think that becoming diocesan priests allows them to have the freedom to celebrate Mass in the EF per Summorum P. There seem to be two slightly different sets of 'freedoms' in this, and those with Pontifical vows do not enjoy the same freedom that any diocesan priest would. So I think it is a good solution to a bad problem. If they are diocesan priests, no authority can prevent them from celebrating the TLM. They will thus 'lose' their order but 'gain' their rightful religious characters. They could join the FSSP or ICK, Canons of St. John Cantius,  etc. I suspect they are following our Lord's advice to be "wise as serpents" in this, as they may have despaired of any help coming from this pope, or may see the writing on the wall.
