Even while our own short-sighted Bishop Bambera has forbidden faithful Catholics from attending the Society of Saint Pius X in Pittston, it seems the real authority in the matter, His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI, is working on a solution with the Lefabvrists.
I'll get back to the Pope in a second.
Does Bishop Bambera go out of his way to instruct the faithful to not attend the Orthodox? Or a Baptist Church? Or a Mosque?
No. No. And no.
But he will go out of his way to instruct the faithful to avoid the Society.
Go and visit the Protestants and do damage to your soul, but stay away from those other Catholics over there. We accept all the religions, all the sects, all the cults, but not those Catholics. Foolishness.
Anyway, back to the Pope and those terrible SSPXers.
The Pope is considering a personal ordinariat for the Society, which is basically a non-geographic diocese. This would secure for the Society a freedom from the local Bishops, and surely this will grate on his Excellence. But eventually I think that will need to change, as it certainly would need to include a change to the Constitution of the Church, which I don't see happening.
Anyway, things are moving along, keep a close eye on how they progress.
