|SSPX Head Meets with Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos|
Remnant Press Release
Remnant Editor’s Note: The following is our translation of a press release of sorts which appeared on a web site operated by Una Voce Venice ( http://www.unavoce-ve.it/panorama08-12-05.htm). The news of a 5-hour meeting between Bishop Fellay of the SSPX and Cardinal Darío Castrillón Hoyos certainly suggests that something significant is afoot with respect to the ongoing negotiations between the Society of St. Pius X and the Vatican. We post it here sans further comment, other than that we look forward to an official statement from the SSPX on this seemingly dramatic development. MJM
Cardinal at table with Tradition
The Lefebvrites ask Hoyos for the Mass in Latin and the withdrawal of the excommunication.
A traditionalist dinner by Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos (photo on

Lefebvrites in his Roman residence, in Piazza della Citta Leonina, a
stone’s throw from the Vatican.
To the Cardinal they gave a copy of the Italian translation of the voluminous biography of Marcel Lefebvre (730 pages), freshly printed. The theme of the conversation: the developments of the dialogue between the Church of Rome and the Traditionalists, after the audience given by Benedict XVI to the Lefebvrists last 29 August.
The withdrawal of the excommunication and the liberalization of the Mass in Latin according to the ancient Tridentine Rite: these [are the] requests (have been) put forward by the Traditionalists to Cardinal Hoyos. (Ignazio Ingrao)
