SSPX Rumours

The rumour that has been floating around for two or three days now says that the SSPX leadership has decided to reject the Doctrinal Preamble.
I don't know if it's true. I really hope it's not, though I have to confess that I have a sad gut feeling that it is.
That being said, DICI has posted an official press release reminding the faithful that these rumours are currently nothing more than that.

Press Release from the General House of the Priestly Society of St Pius X (November 2 2011)

Filed under From TraditionNews
Since the meeting of the seminary Rectors and District Superiors of the Society of St. Pius X in Albano (Italy) on October 7, 2011, several comments have been published in the press about the answer that Bishop Bernard Fellay should give to the Roman propositions of September 14th.
It has to be recalled that only the SSPX’s General House has the competency to publish an official communique or authorized comment on the subject.
Until further notice, one should reference the communique of October 7, 2011. (DICI of 11/02/11).

We've seen lots of rumours before, and many of them turned out to be false. We also know that there are a lot of people out there on both sides who do not want to see a reunion. There certainly is sufficient motive for some misguided individuals to sabotage the reunion process from either camp.

In any case, keep praying for reunion. I will not listen to these rumours until such a time as they are confirmed true or false.
