Traditional Catholic news roundup

2. A partial translation of the stern letter of the Bishop of Albenga-Imperia (Liguria, Italy), Mario Oliveri, ordering his priests, under pain of disobedience, to implement the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum faithfully. (The New Liturgical Movement)

Bishop Oliveri stands out in the Italian episcopate for his respect for Tradition: he wrote the preface for Msgr. Brunero Gherardini's The Ecumenical Vatican Council II: A Much-Needed Discussion, spoke out repeatedly in favor of Summorum Pontificum (in addition to offering Pontifical Mass according to the 1962 Missal a number of times) and welcomed the Benedictines of the Immaculate to his diocese. Rorate wrote about him in 2009: An Oasis for the 1962 Missal in Italy

3.  (Update) The content of the third external news item  to which we had linked was incorrect in several of its most important details. From the SSPX we have received the following note: "The affirmation according to which the abjuration was received from the hands of Bp. Fellay and approved by Cardinal Levada is incorrect."
