Prefect of CDF: No more talks with SSPX

CFN Note: The Wanderer's Father John Zuhlsdorf today (Oct. 4) posted the following. I disagree with his analysis, as he faults the SSPX for allegedly dictating to the Pope, and now the Pope's patience has run out. The fact, however, is that the SSPX does not "dictate," nor does it demand anything unreasonable, but merely insists on holding to the Catholic Faith "in the same meaning and in the same explanation" as the Church always taught throughout the centuries, and on continuing to stand against the Errors of Vatican II - JV

In an interview with German radio station NDR, Archbishop Müller, Prefect of the CDF, has stated that there will be no more talks with SSPX.

See the radio stations German press statement
HERE. The interview will be broadcast on October 6th.

Some quotes:

“This fraternity is no partner for negotiations for us, because we cannot negotiate the faith.”
(“Diese Bruderschaft ist für uns kein Verhandlungspartner, weil es über den Glauben keine Verhandlungen gibt.” )

“There can be no reductions in the Catholic faith, even more so as the second Vatican Council validly formulated it. The Second Vatican Council is not opposed to the tradition of the Church, possibly at most some incorrect interpretations of the Catholic faith”.
(“Es gibt keine Ermäßigungen was den katholischen Glauben angeht, gerade wie er auch vom Zweiten Vatikanischen Konzil gültig formuliert worden ist. Das Zweite Vatikanische Konzil steht nicht im Gegensatz zur gesamtkirchlichen Tradition, allenfalls im Gegensatz zu mancher falschen Interpretation des katholischen Glaubens.” )

“I don’t think there will be any more new talks”
(“Ich glaube, es gibt jetzt keine neuen Gespräche mehr”.)
