Does Come De Previgny Read This Blog?

He just might, since he asks the same question we did not so long ago. In a recent item from Rorate, he discusses the views of the SSPX and compares them with those of Msgr. Gherardini. You can read the whole thing for yourself, but check out the last part:

If affirming that the texts of the Council are disconnected from Tradition makes the Society worthy of being considered outside the Church, is it to be thought that Monsignor Gherardini deserves excommunication for having dared to publicly affirm that which others will never have the boldness of saying?

This sounds a lot like what we posted a couple of weeks ago:

If the SSPX comments are denied, what does that say about guys like Monsignor Gherardini or Bishop Athanasius Schneider who also question some elements of the Council? Are they subject to some sort of negative action as well?

Hey, I'm just sayin' is all. Msgr. Gherardini's question remains the crux, I think. What is the authority of Vatican II in the realm of the Magisterium?
