Well, that is news to Rome, considering the Pope has given the SSPX the permission to ordain Roman Catholic priests in any diocese in the world. Moreover, on numerous occasions the Vatican has called on leaders within the SSPX to “report” to Rome for various meetings and the SSPX leaders have always obediently gone. Nov 26, 2020 It launched its investigation into the SSPX in 2019, as part of a wider criminal probe into clergy sex abuse. While the SSPX was aware of the investigation in 2019, the public was not — until it. The Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX or FSSPX; Latin: Fraternitas Sacerdotalis Sancti Pii X) is an international priestly fraternity founded in 1970 by Marcel Lefebvre, a traditionalist French Archbishop. The society is named after Pope Pius X, whose anti-Modernist stance the society stresses, retaining the Tridentine Mass and pre-Vatican II ritual books in Latin for the other sacraments. Oct 22, 2019 Rome discouraged all laypeople from seeking the sacraments from SSPX priests, and the order entered a state known as canonical irregularity. A group of Society priests quickly split from Lefebvre and formed a new order in full communion with Rome: the Priestly Fraternity of St. Rome, SSPX, & Reconciliation. 15 Monday Oct 2012.

SSPX head says members must preserve their identity, tradition
VATICAN CITY - The head of the traditionalist Society of St. Pius X said he would inform the Vatican soon on the society's official position on Vatican efforts to bring the group back into full communion with the Church.
The response will insist that the society must preserve its identity, which is 'the only efficacious means to help the Church restore Christendom,' said Bishop Bernard Fellay, superior general of the society.
His remarks were contained in an interview published July 16 on the group's web site, www.dici.org, after members of the society held its general chapter meeting to discuss Vatican efforts to bring it back into full communion.
Mass confusion: Misunderstanding at root of 'liturgy wars'
VATICAN CITY - Half a century after the start of the Second Vatican Council, the reform of the liturgy initiated there has not lost its power to stoke controversy.
On June 13, after years of on-again-off-again talks with the traditionalist Society of St. Pius X, which effectively broke from Rome almost 25 years ago to protest the teachings of Vatican II and subsequent changes to the Mass, the Vatican announced that the traditionalists had been formally offered terms of reconciliation.June 13, 2012
Bishop Fellay, doctrinal officials meet for discussions at Vatican
VATICAN CITY - Bishop Bernard Fellay, superior general of the traditionalist Society of St. Pius X, met for more than two hours with officials of the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith June 13.
The Vatican did not immediately issue a statement on the meeting, part of ongoing talks aimed at reconciling the breakaway group with the Catholic Church. The society's founder, the late French Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, who rejected some teachings of the Second Vatican Council and the modernizing reforms instituted in its wake, was excommunicated for ordaining Bishop Fellay and three other bishops without papal permission in 1988.
In April, Bishop Fellay submitted to the Vatican his second official response to a 'doctrinal preamble' outlining what the Vatican said were 'some doctrinal principles and criteria for the interpretation of Catholic doctrine necessary to guarantee fidelity' to the formal teaching of the church, presumably including the teachings of the Second Vatican Council.
The bishop's reply was studied by the cardinal-members of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and, ultimately, by Pope Benedict XVI.
The cardinals and the pope had studied Bishop Fellay's first response, which was submitted in January, and later issued a statement saying his position 'is not sufficient to overcome the doctrinal problems that are at the basis of the fracture between the Holy See and the society.'
While Bishop Fellay has been generally positive about the possibility of reconciliation with Rome, leaked letters show that the society's three other bishops have had serious reservations about the process.
In May, Jesuit Father Federico Lombardi, Vatican spokesman, said, 'In consideration of the positions taken by the three other bishops of the Society of St. Pius, their situation will have to be treated separately and individually' from the effort to reconcile with the SSPX as a whole and with Bishop Fellay.
'It is not that this is a process that necessarily will reach a solution that embraces all the positions' found among all the SSPX members, Father Lombardi said in May.
Pope Benedict's latest efforts to bring about reconciliation with the traditionalist group began when he lifted the excommunications incurred by Bishop Fellay and the other SSPX bishops after they were ordained without papal permission. The pope also established a Vatican committee for doctrinal talks with society representatives in 2009 and drafted the 'doctrinal preamble' to explain the 'minimal, essential' elements on which the society would have to agree for full reconciliation, Father Lombardi had said.
When the Vatican's doctrinal discussions with the society began in 2009, both sides said the key issues to be discussed included the concept of tradition in general, as well as the Second Vatican Council's teaching on the liturgy, the unity of the church, ecumenism, interreligious dialogue and religious freedom.June 7, 2012
SSPX head says group does not have to accept all Vatican II teachings
VATICAN CITY - The leader of the traditionalist Society of St. Pius X said talks with the Vatican demonstrate that 'Rome no longer makes total acceptance' of the teachings of the Second Vatican Council a condition for his group's full reconciliation with the church.
Accepting the council's teaching is no longer 'a prerequisite for the canonical solution' of the status of the society, said Bishop Bernard Fellay, superior general of the SSPX.
In an interview published June 7 on the society's news site, www.dici.org, Bishop Fellay said it was the Vatican that approached the society, and not the society that went to the Vatican, asking to begin the talks.
