So Bishop Williamson Might Have Finally Lost His Mind

Per Rorate:

Today, we were contacted by a worthy source claiming that H.E. Bishop Richard Williamson, formerly of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), was to come to the United States in a couple of weeks to consecrate a bishop.

Rorate independently contacted one of the priests said to be organizing the consecration ceremony. Although we asked repeatedly, the priest refused to deny the consecration would be taking place, only saying there's nothing to report to the "general public."

If true, you can't say that nobody saw this coming. And in saying that, I mean saw it coming a decade ago. My only question is whether he'll just come out and openly declare himself a sede.

Rorate's source is a separate blog that indicates a bigger schism on the horizon. My question on that is whether this will be something that drives the real SSPX closer to Rome.

Time will tell, I guess.
