By that date, the SSPX which was founded by Archbishop Lefebvre had make a response to the June 2012, "Doctrinal preamble" presented by the Vatican.

At noon today, theVatican spokesman Father Federico Lombardi said that Pope Benedict XVI would leave the matter of the SSPX to his successor, without making any further details.
