Could certain Vatican officials be speaking out of both sides of their mouth?
Bishop Fellay seems to be saying that. If true, it's scandalous.
Bishop Fellay isn't helping matters much either as he reiterates SSPX policy statements such as these:
Apparently speaking without a text, he also called the Jewish people "enemies of the church," saying Jewish leaders' support of the Second Vatican Council "shows that Vatican II is their thing, not the church's."Bishop Fellay isn't all that different from Bishop Willimason then, is he.
Bishop Fellay said he repeatedly told the Vatican that the contents of the preamble -- particularly acceptance of the modern Mass and the council as expressed in the Catechism of the Catholic Church -- were unacceptable.
Bishop Fellay said Pope Benedict wrote to him, emphasizing that full recognition required the society accept the magisterium as the judge of what is tradition, accept the council as an integral part of tradition and accept that the modern Mass is valid and licit.
Bishop Fellay said, "Even in the council there are some things we accept," as well as reject, however, the group wishes to be free to say, "there are errors in the council" and that "the new Mass is evil." - CNS
The smoke of Satan indeed.
I'll stick with the Pope.
