How’s your Italian? There’s a very good blog called messainlatino.it, which I like to visit to supplement my Italian studies. It has many fascinating articles. Today they have some interesting information about the talks between the Vatican and the SSPX. Here are some extracts:
The composition of the Lefebvrian delegation could change in future, to allow for participation by those with different areas of expertise.
The discussions are not in Latin. They appear to be in French and Italian; all those participating understand these languages, but since none is completely at home in one or other of the languages, they are provided with simultaneous translation.
The SSPX delegation is staying at the Domus Sanctae Marthae, where the cardinals have lodged for papal conclaves.
Since all the altars at the Domus are already booked for Masses, the SSPX’s Masses are celebrated in St Peter’s Basilica.
Lastly, and I think most interestingly, the proceedings are being filmed, so that the Holy Father can watch them.
