Yet another unaccountable prospect from the pope of surprises?
As reported by Rorate Caeli (February 26, 2016), Argentine-Spanish Bishop of the Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX), Alfonso de Galarreta, in a conference in Versailles, on January 17, suggested that Pope Francis is leaning towards "a one-sided recognition" of the SSPX. In his own words:
... I am not saying what I desire but what I foresee. I foresee, I think that the pope will lean towards a one-sided recognition of the Society, and that by acts rather than by a legal or canonical approach.
