This blog will be our Witness for the Faith. We see a need for good, traditional, Catholic fellowship. Witness will strive to be imbued with charity. Love of neighbor - and yes, love of enemy. We should be a "witness" for our Faith.
"The Apostles, with the help of the Holy Spirit, responded well: they summoned the group of disciples and spoke to them. And this is the first step: when there are difficulties, we need to look closely at them, and confront them and speak about them. But never hide them" Pope Francis

SSPX - Rome Reconciliation?
Reports in Le Figaro suggest that the Society of St. Pius X and Rome may sign an accord of understanding. Various reports also carried by the blog, Rorate Caeli suggest a possible positive outcome. Louie Verecchio has some interesting reflections on the recent negotiations.
Personally, this would be a great day for the Church. The Society has a great many things to offer the Church. The personal involvement of Pope Benedict to remove unnecessary obstacles speaks to this offering that the Society could bring.
It is not just a question of "beautiful" liturgy; but of correct doctrine - in full union with Rome, without ambiguity - being available to the faithful. It would be an understatement to say that correct doctrine is needed in parish life.
