Unity is in the Air; Everywhere I Look Around

Rorate Caeli reports some movement on the SSPX front.

Two questions:

Will they take this offer?

If Fellay goes for this deal, how many SSPX supporters will go for full-bore schism rather than follow him into regularization?

Look, I’m sympathetic to what a lot of these people have had to go through. Many of them were basically cast out of their old parishes by heretics who had no tolerance for folks who tried to stick up for the Faith. As I said in response to a comment a while back, though, you can’t clean the stables from the outside. If the SSPX wants to make a real difference, they are going to have to do it without taking a stance that will automatically discredit or marginalize them to those Average Joe Catholics who they are trying to reach.
