Published today, March 24th, from the German District of the SSPX:
Translation of the statement:
“On Tuesday, February 8, 2022, Don Davide Pagliarani, Superior General of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Pius X, went to Rome. On this occasion, there was a personal meeting with Pope Francis, who received him in private audience for about half an hour.
The informal conversation was very polite and gave the Superior General the opportunity to introduce himself to the Holy Father, whom he was meeting for the first time. This meeting allowed him to show that the Fraternity has no other goal than to serve the Church in the midst of the current crisis. Father Pagliarani had the opportunity to make it clear to the Pope that everything the Fraternity does has only this service as its goal. Of course, good memories of Argentina were mutually exchanged.
This visit of the Superior General to the Holy Father was the fulfillment of a long-held desire, which unfortunately could not be realized for a long time because of the circumstances of the past months.
Let us not fail to pray for the ecclesiastical authorities, and especially for the Pope! Through these prayers, may Tradition regain all its rights in the Church, so that as many souls as possible may benefit from it and work their eternal salvation!”
In Christ Crucified and the Most Victorious Heart of Jesus.
