SSPX Rumors

Several usually reputable sources are buzzing with the rumor that Pope Benedict XVI is preparing to lift the excommunications imposed on the four schismatic bishops of the Society of St. Pius X. Some are suggesting that the decree may have already been signed and its publication is imminent. Rorate has the details.

Wow.

The details of this deal will reveal a great deal about just how far BenXVI sees VatII as, well, a problem.

I must admit, I am dying from curiosity. At least one their bishops is a certifiable nut case. But the other three might be something that Rome can work with.
