The head of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) is exhorting members of
the traditionalist group to "redouble their fervor in prayer" during
Holy Week, as a deadline approaches for the SSPX to respond to a
Vatican offer.

Bishop Bernard Fellay has reminded SSPX members that on March 16 he
met with Cardinal William Levada, the prefect of the Congregation for
the Doctrine of the Faith, to discuss the SSPX response to the
"doctrinal preamble" that would form a basis for the reconciliation of
the traditionalist group with the Holy See. Cardinal Levada asked for
a further "clarification" of the SSPX stance, indicating that the
group's latest position had not been acceptable as a basis for accord.

Bishop Fellay urged the faithful to pray during Holy Week and Easter
"that the Divine Will may be done." He called special attention to the
Rosary Crusade that the SSPX began at Easter in 2011, and encouraged
prayers that the Virgin Mary "might obtain from her divine Son the
lights necessary to know His will clearly and to carry it out
