Doing the legal leg work

Dr. Peters over at In the Light of the Law takes a frank look at what needs to canonically happen for the four bishops of the SSPX to return to the Church.

As he points out, "The SSPX membership has never (to my knowledge) been declared to be under a penalty; its leadership (the surviving bishops) have been so declared. It is their canonical status that is at issue just now; other things are certainly related, but canonically distinct. In short, one problem at a time."
