“How do we feel? We are serene”. In an interview with SIR, Father Christian Thouvenot, director of DICI, the press agency of the Mother House of the Society of Saint Pius X, comments on how the Lefebvrian world feels about the long negotiations characterising the difficult and complex reconciliation process between the Priestly Society of Saint Pius X and the Vatican. Immediately afterwards, Father Thouvenot recalls the statement through which the Mother House of the Society intends to reaffirm that the response sent yesterday by the Superior General, Mgr. Bernard Felley, represents “a stage and not a conclusion”. “The media – the statement reads - are announcing that Bishop Bernard Fellay has sent a ‘positive response’ to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and that consequently the doctrinal question between the Holy See and the Society of Saint Pius X is now resolved. The reality is different. In a letter dated April 17, the Superior General of the Society of Saint Pius X responded to the request for clarification that had been made to him on March 16 by Card. William Levada concerning the Doctrinal Preamble delivered on September 14, 2011. As the press release dated today from the Ecclesia Dei Commission indicates, the text of this response ‘will be examined by the Dicastery (Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith) and then submitted to the Holy Father for his judgement’. This is therefore a stage and not a conclusion”.
