The dialogue between the Holy See and the Lefebvrians has reached a crucial point. Having carefully examined the content of the doctrinal preamble including the modifications requested by the Society of St. Pius X, Benedict XVI has allegedly taken a decision and communicated it to Cardinal and Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, William Levada, and the dicastery’s secretary, Archbishop Luis Ladaria Ferrer, during an audience with them last Saturday.

*[Update:] French religious news agency I.Media confirms the information that the Superior General is in Rome and adds the following (it is now 1430 in Rome):

The Superior of the Society of Saint Pius X (FSSPX), Bp. Bernard Fellay, was called to the Vatican to meet, in the afternoon of June 13, 2012, the officers of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), I.Media has learned. Following this meeting, the Prefect of this Dicastery, Cardinal William Levada, will deliver to the FSSPX authority the conclusions of Benedict XVI at the end of the discussions aiming at bringing the Society to full communion with Rome.
