One of the most important French national dailies, Le Figaro, reports this Monday on the Pentecost weekend Traditionalist pilgrimages in France (the Ecclesia Dei pilgrimage, from Paris to Chartres; and the FSSPX pilgrimage from Chartres to Paris). The most relevant portion of the article, though, are the words of the Superior-General of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Pius X (FSSPX/SSPX), Bishop Bernard Fellay, who celebrated Mass for the second group of pilgrims yesterday. Asked about the reconciliation process with the Holy See, he answers:
"My impression," he explains, "is that the movement to reconciliation willed by the Pope has been halted, at the Vatican or elsewhere". He also recognizes, however, that, in any event, "nothing shall come, undoubtedly, before [their] General Chapter".
