Bishop Fellay visited the CDF: Reconciliation is moving forward

Andrea Tornielli, of La Stampa reports that Bishop Fellay, Superior of the Society of St. Pius X, has recently been in Rome prior to - the much anticipated and hoped for - formal announcement of canonical steps to be taken for full union. 

"Vatican Insider has learnt that during the meeting, attendees discussed some of the modifications Fellay had proposed for the doctrinal preamble. The outcome seems to have been positive. In the morning of Wednesday 16 May, the Feria Quarta meeting will be held in the Palace of the Holy Office". 

The Holy Father will receive in audience curial officials from the Congregation of the Faith, with their recommendations following a review of the modified "Doctrinal Preamble" sent earlier by Bishop Fellay. Tornielli reports that the CDF has reviewed this modified document in a positive manner and will recommend to the Supreme Pontiff accordingly, who will make a final decision within days.
