    I hope Bp. Williamson's letter to Bp. Fellay is made public soon.


    For what it’s worth, an email from Italy which I don’t have time to translate right now:

    Comunicato della Casa Generalizia

    http://www.sanpiox.it/public/

    Monsignor Richard Williamson, che da diversi anni aveva preso le distanze dalla direzione e dal governo della Fraternità Sacerdotale San Pio X, rifiutando di manifestare il rispetto e l’obbedienza dovuti ai suoi legittimi superiori, è stato dichiarato escluso dalla Fraternità Sacerdotale San Pio X per decisione del Superiore generale e del suo Consiglio, il 4 ottobre 2012. Un ultimo lasso di tempo gli era stato accordato per sottomettersi, al termine del quale egli ha annunciato la diffusione di una ”lettera aperta” in cui chiede al Superiore generale di dare le dimissioni.

    Questa dolorosa decisione si è resa necessaria per la cura del bene comune della Fraternità San Pio X e del suo buon governo, conformemente a ciò che Mons. Lefebvre denunciava: “E’ la distruzione dell’autorità. Come l’autorità può esercitarsi se deve chiedere a tutti i membri di partecipare all’esercizio dell’autorità stessa?” (Ecône, 29 giugno 1987)
    Menzingen, 24 ottobre 2012


    No time to translate right now. If someone else can that would be good. If not you can probably find it elsewhere, otherwise I’ll do it later, but I don’t think that will be necessary.

    Communiqué de la Maison Générale de la Fraternité Saint-Pie X (24 octobre 2012)

    24-10-2012  
    Classé sous Actualités, Tradition

    Mgr Richard Williamson ayant pris ses distances avec la direction et le gouvernement de la Fraternité Sacerdotale Saint-Pie X depuis plusieurs années, et refusant de manifester le respect et l’obéissance dus à ses supérieurs légitimes, a été déclaré exclu de la Fraternité Sacerdotale Saint-Pie X par décision du Supérieur général et de son Conseil, le 4 octobre 2012. Un ultime délai lui avait été accordé pour se soumettre, au terme duquel il a annoncé la diffusion d’une “lettre ouverte” où il demande au Supérieur général de démissionner.
     
    Cette décision douloureuse est rendue nécessaire par le souci du bien commun de la Fraternité Saint-Pie X et de son bon gouvernement, conformément à ce que Mgr Lefebvre dénonçait : « C’est la destruction de l’autorité. Comment l’autorité peut-elle s’exercer s’il faut qu’elle demande à tous les membres de participer à l’exercice de l’autorité ? » (Ecône, 29 juin 1987)

    General House communiqué concerning Bishop Williamson
     
     
    10-24-2012 | DICI

    Bishop Richard Williamson, having distanced himself from the management and the government of the SSPX for several years, and refusing to show due respect and obedience to his lawful superiors, was declared excluded from the SSPX by decision of the Superior General and its Council, on October 4, 2012. A final deadline had been granted to him to declare his submission, after which he announced the publication of an “open letter” asking the Superior General to resign.

    This painful decision has become necessary by concern for the common good of the Society of St. Pius X and its good government, according to what Archbishop Lefebvre denounced: “This is the destruction of authority. How authority can be exercised if it needs to ask all members to participate in the exercise of authority?" (Econe, June 29, 1987)

    Menzingen, October 24, 2012.
