SSPX Press Release from the General House in Menzingen, Switzerland
On October 7, 2011, a meeting of all those in charge of the Society of St. Pius X was held in Albano, Italy, during which the Superior General, H. E. Bishop Bernard Fellay, presented the content of the Doctrinal Preamble, handed over to him by Cardinal William Levada, Prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, at the Vatican, during last September 14 meeting.
During this day, the 28 persons in charge of the Society of St. Pius X present at the meeting—seminary rectors, district superiors from all over the world—manifested a profound unity in their will to maintain the Faith in its integrity and its fullness, faithful to the lesson which Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre left them, according to St. Paul’s “Tradidi quod et accepi—I have handed over what I myself have received” (I Cor 15:3).
Following this work meeting, the study of the Doctrinal Preamble—of which the content still remains confidential—will be pursued and further analysed at the level of the General Counsel of the Society of St. Pius X, by the Superior General and his two Assistants, Frs. Niklaus Pfluger and Alain Nely, enabling them to present an answer to the Roman proposals in a reasonable time.
