Certainly the 3 other bishops would like to see this resolved amicably without getting into any ugly and public battles with +Fellay. Wouldn't we all?
But the real world we live in is another kind of thing. There are legalities involved. There are financial holdings and real estate worldwide to consider. These things cannot be overlooked out of a desire for "let's all get along." Too many times fortunes pass into the wrong hands merely because they're the hands that hired a lawyer first.
+Fellay has made it no secret for decades now that he greatly esteems unity with Rome, and it would seem he has hinted that such an end is somehow worth some small degree of compromise. But in principle, no compromise is ever okay when it comes to doctrine.
All of our most dedicated efforts falling short, however, this may ultimately become a matter resolvable only by the intervention of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
Enough said................. :reporter:
