(Update on Wednesday, May 16: CNS STORY: Vatican says reconciliation talks with SSPX still ongoing)
Watch parts of our exclusive interview with Bishop Bernard Fellay, superior general of the Society of St. Pius X, at the society’s headquarters in Menzingen, Switzerland. Bishop Fellay has been at the heart of a drama within the Catholic Church since he was ordained illicitly by the group’s founder, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, in 1988, protesting the modernizing reforms of the Second Vatican Council. Since 2009, he has been involved in private doctrinal talks with Rome in an effort to overcome the division between his traditionalist society and the Vatican. An announcement is expected by the end of May regarding the outcome of those talks.
