What Bp. Fellay says to our enemies, when he thinks nobody is looking...

Posted by The Editor on May 11, 2013 at 4:45 AM

After learning, in mid-June 2012, that his Doctrinal Declaration had not been accepted by Rome, Bishop Fellay wrote to Benedict XVI.

That letter was only recently released, in the most recent edition of Cor Unum. An English translation can be found here.


It makes interesting reading, not least becuase one can see a clear difference between what Bp. Fellay says to the Pope in private and what he tells the rest of the world in public.

In particular, we draw the reader's attention to Bishop Fellay's frank admission that "I had believed that you were disposed to leave till a later date the resolution of outstanding disagreements over certain points of the Council and liturgical reform ...I committed myself in this perspective despite the fairly strong opposition in the ranks of the Society and at the price of substantial disruption. And I fully intend to continue to do my best to pursue this path to reach the necessary clarifications."

 - Read: "I don't care what the consequences are for the SSPX, for Tradition or for souls. I am committed to seeking recognition by modernist Rome, whatever the cost.
