Today, since today was an interim day for a silent retreat at which I was obligated to attend, I began to browse through the blogs on my sidebar. Then, I noticed the glorious news: the bishops of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X have been declared as not being excommunicated. I have long supported the idea, canonically legitimate, that the Priestly Society of St. Pius X was never excommunicated because the initial decree was unjustifiable per Canon Law.

Yet, regardless, today it is official: The Bishops Bernard Fellay, Alfonso de Gallareta [sic - Galarreta], [Bernard] Tissier de Mallerais, and Richard Williamson are not excommunicated!!


New Liturgical Movement: Excommunications Lifted
New Liturgical Movement: Response of SSPX Superior General
New Liturgical Movement: FSSP Press Release

As additional information becomes available in the coming weeks, I will update this post. Check back at the bottom of this post for future updates in the coming weeks.

Update (February 7, 2009): It is unfortunate that political reasons have caused the following stories:

Rorate Caeli: SSPX expels Father Abrahamowicz
Bishop Williamson is no longer rector of the seminary in Argentina (confirmation)
