Head of German Bishops Conference does not expect deal with SSPX

net-tribune: Zollitsch erwartet kein Einlenken der Pius-Bruderschaft:

Cathcon for "does not expect" read "does not want"

The chairman of the German Bishops' Conference, Robert Zollitsch, assumes that the controversial SSPX will not accept the terms of the Catholic church . "I hardly see any willingness to give way because they are so set in their ways (Cathcon: of course, the Archbishop is not set in his ways) that they practically would have to concede their positions," said the Archbishop of Freiburg to the "Mannheimer Morgen" (Wednesday edition). Concessions in the talks between the Vatican and SSPX Zollitsch rejected: "Not on doctrine. The truth is neither negotiable nor divisible . "However, one can discuss the way the liturgy is presented," Zollitsch said. "But the unconditional 'yes' to all Councils and the teaching of the popes from Pope John XXIII by Benedict XVI is necessary to stay in harmony with the Church."
