As Vatican Insider reported this morning, the dialogue between the Holy See and the Lefebvrians has reached a crucial point. Having carefully studied the content of the doctrinal preamble with the added modifications requested by the Superior of the Society of St. Pius X, Benedict XVI took his final decision and communicated it to the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal William Levada and the Secretary of the dicastery, Archbishop Luis Ladaria Ferrer, during an Audience with them last Saturday.

Cardinal Levada delivered the text of the doctrinal declaration to Mgr. Fellay this afternoon, in the offices of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, in Rome. The Lefevrian Superior arrived at the Society of St. Pius X’s house in Albano Laziale, near Rome.

The content of the preamble is still top secret  but as has been promised from the beginning, it will be published if a formal agreement is reached between the Holy See and the Society founded by Mgr. Lefebvre. The final decision is therefore now in the hands of Mgr. Fellay: if he decides to accept the returned text, the agreement will be officially announced  and the Society of St. Pius X will be given personal prelature status and will answer directly to the Holy See.
