Swiss Bishops Conference welcome the Papal decision

Schweizer Bischöfe begrüssen Papst-Entscheid

The Swiss Bishops' Conference sees in the lifting of the excommunication the way open to the overcoming of the split, said a statement signed by the President, Bishop Kurt Koch.

And from the statement itself, the key ending

Pope Benedict XVI. was led to his decision by the conviction that after the recognition of the Magisterium and the authority of the Pope, there were good prospects that the forthcoming discussions would reach agreement on the outstanding issues regarding the mandatory adoption of the Second Vatican Council . In this way, the complete reconciliation in full communion on the basis of their common faith would find its visible expression. I hope and pray that this reconciliation will happen.

The Backlash begins.
