Vatican: Pius X Society Ordinations Are Illegitimate | Daily News | NCRegister.com.

“The Vatican spokesman, Jesuit Father Federico Lombardi, has dismissed the recent ordination of 20 priests by the Society of St. Pius X as illegitimate.

“As long as the society does not have a canonical status in the Church, Benedict XVI underlines, its ministers do not exercise legitimate ministries in the Church,” said
Father Lombardi in response to a question from EWTN News at a July 5 media conference.

Father Lombardi said that the society’s canonical status will not be resolved “until the doctrinal questions are clarified.”

 

It is important to keep praying for unity within the Catholic Church.
