Informal meeting with Cardinal Brandmüller

On December 5, 2014, Cardinal Walter Brandmüller, president emeritus of the Pontifical Committee for Historical Sciences, met with Bishop Bernard Fellay, superior general of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X, accompanied by several priests. The meeting was held at the Herz Jesu Seminary of Zaitzkofen, in Bavaria.

This meeting was a follow up of the September 23, 2014 meeting in Rome, during which all had agreed to pursue the doctrinal discussions “in a larger and less formal context than that of the preceding meetings.” (see DICI no.302 Oct. 10, 2014). The theme was the Council and its magisterial authority.

The goal of these meetings is to make the Church’s authorities more aware of the Society and the works of Tradition, and at the same time to expose to them the serious objections and points of divergence that remain concerning Vatican Council II and its reforms. In this perspective, two more meetings are scheduled in the coming months, one at the Saint-Curé-d’Ars Seminary in Flavigny (France), and the other at St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Winona (USA).
