Lefebvrite schism may be nearing an end

Lefebvrite schism may be nearing an end | National Catholic Reporter:

 "The Vatican confirmed Wednesday that the Society of St. Pius X, the traditionalist movement founded by the late French Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, has responded to a “doctrinal preamble” presented in September as a precondition for reunion with the Catholic church.

A terse statement released by the Vatican’s Ecclesia Dei Commission, responsible for relations with the traditionalists, said only that a response has been received and will be studied by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and eventually submitted to the pope.

Sources indicate, however, that the Lefebvrite superior, Swiss Bishop Bernard Fellay, has communicated a largely positive reaction to the preamble, proposing only small changes described as “non-substantive.”
That concession could clear the way for formal readmission of the Society of St. Pius X into full communion with Rome."

This is a link to a communique from Vatican's Ecclesia Dei. It only says that Bishop Fellay DELIVERED a new text. Nowhere do they say he SIGNED anything.
