In the Spirit of Sobieski

Polish bishops welcome "the great courage of the Pope".

Now where are all the other Catholic Bishops' Conferences?

"To open the door to dialogue which aims at putting an end to a sad schism is an act of great courage" assess the Bishops in a letter addressed to the Sovereign Pontiff, signed notably by the President of the Episcopal Conference, Mgr Jozef Michalik.

Pope: Next year in Berlin

Pope visits Germany in 2010 on an official state visit. In the nicest possible way, it will be payback time for all those German Catholics who forgot in recent weeks that the Pope is the Vicar of Christ on earth, as they are obliged to affirm with all their hearts.

Rome and the SSPX: One Heck of an Opportunity

A thoughtful, intelligent piece from a Feeneyite source- Cathcon is not a Feeneyite before comments flood in.

Don't turn Cardinal Hoyos into a scapegoat.


Could it [the commotion caused by the Decree lifting the excommunication] have been avoided?

Honestly, the delicate point is to know who knew the opinions of this man. When it is proposed to the Pope to lift the excommunication of four Bishops, it is not an important number, as [it would be] if they were 150. They are known, these four Bishops. Undoubtedly, the people who managed this situation were not aware of the gravity of the opinions of Mgr Williamson. It is true that the negotiations were conducted with Mgr Fellay. But the positions of the other Bishops were not taken into consideration. What is certain is that the Pope ignored it. If there was someone who should know it, it is Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos."
