1. After Bp. Marcello Semeraro, of Albano, Italy, Secretary of the Papal Council of Reform (Council of Nine Cardinals) solemnly declared "out of communion with the Catholic Church" all faithful who go to Masses and receive sacraments from priests of the Society of Saint Pius X (FSSPX / SSPX), also threatening their children with a "special penitential path", the local district of that society made the following statement, which we post here for the record of ongoing events:
ALBANO, ITALY – 10-31-2013
In a notification dated October 14 of this year, Bishop Marcello Semeraro, Ordinary of the Diocese of Albano Laziale (Italy), made particularly odious statements about the Society of St. Pius X, for the purpose of keeping the faithful away from Masses celebrated by our Society and from the religious instruction given to young people, declaring that the Society was not “an institution of the Catholic Church”.
