Ex-Communications Withdrawn

B16 lifted the excommunications of four Lefevrist bishops today. No comment until I understand the move (two of those bishops strike me as nutters).

Fr. Z. has a helpful Q & A for folks like me who don't know what this actually means: bottom line is that little has changed in the status of the SSPX with respect to Rome. There's no reunion yet, only a generous move on the Holy Father's part to stimulate movement.

Good folks is happy.
