Rome-SSPX: Bishop Fellay " Where do we stand with Rome"

Bishop Bernard Fellay
Bishop Bernard Fellay, SSPX Superior General recently spoke of the developments with Rome regarding the Doctrinal discussions and canonical recognition. One could say that this sermon, and the recent information coming from the CDF point to a cooling off period in which the status quo will be maintained. 

On November 1, 2012, on the feast of All Saints, Bishop Bernard Fellay celebrated Mass at the seminary in Ecône.  During his sermon, after recalling the spiritual meaning of this feast, he explained the status of the relations of the Society of Saint Pius X with Rome.  – The title and subtitles are by the editors of DICI. 
…  Why is there a Society of Saint Pius X?  Why do we become priests?  It is not just for the pleasure of celebrating the old Mass.  It is in order to go to Heaven;  it is in order to save souls!  Certainly, while preserving the treasures of the Church, but with the purpose of saving souls, of sanctifying them by snatching them away from sin, by leading them to Heaven, by leading them to Our Lord.
Where do we stand with Rome?  Allow me to explain two points.  First, a look at what has happened.  Then, a look at the present and perhaps at the future.

Wow... traditional means whatever I say it means, no more and no less. Humpty Dumpty would be so proud.

"When I use a word," Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, "it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less."
"The question is," said Alice, "whether you can make words mean so many different things."
"The question is," said Humpty Dumpty, "which is to be master that's all."

Fellay, in making statements such as the new Mass not being good is re-digging the old hole out of which he will not be able to climb.
