Remnant Comment: So according to this report, “dialogue” with the SSPX is part of the reason the commission has become redundant. Trouble is, a "deal" with the SSPX seems far from a done deal. So, what are we talking about here?
Has the purge of all things Traditional begun?
The good news? The SSPX is holding its ground. In their January 19, 2019 statement we read the following vintage position of the Society of St. Pius X:
One conclusion is evident: as the so-called Ecclesia Dei communities have preserved “their spiritual and liturgical traditions”, they clearly do not count in this discussion. If they remain attached to a section of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, it is incidental. They can have the Mass, the “spiritual and liturgical traditions”, but not the whole doctrine that goes along with them. That has always been the Society of St. Pius X’s great reproach against Dom Gérard [founder of the Benedictine monastery at Le Barroux who worked with Archbishop Lefebvre until 1988] and all those who thought they should break the unity of Tradition in order to negotiate a purely practical agreement. The crisis of the Church cannot be reduced to a spiritual or liturgical question alone. It is deeper, for it touches the very heart of the Faith and the doctrine of Revelation, Christ the King’s right to reign here below over men and over societies.
Indeed it does! Viva Cristo Rey!
