  Papal pardon may be pending for SPPX bishops
  Published: January 23, 2009
  Pope Benedict is reported to be ready to revoke the excommunication imposed 
on four bishops ordained by the late dissident French Archbishop Marcel 
Lefebvre. 

  Official sources at the Vatican would neither confirm nor deny whether the 
reports printed in the dailies Il Giornale and Il Riformista were true, ANSA 
reports. 

  Archbishop Lefebvre, who died in 1991, was excommunicated in 1988 along with 
four bishops he ordained without permission from the Vatican. 

  Last summer the pope set conditions for the followers of the traditional 
French archbishop, who belong to the Society of Saint Pius X which he set up in 
1970, to rejoin the Church of Rome. 

  The Fraternity responded to the overture by asking that the excommunications 
be lifted before any discussion of the conditions began.

  The Society broke with Rome over the changes made at the Second Vatican 
Council. 

  The Society of Saint Pius X is the only group to break away from the Catholic 
Church since the reforms of the early 1960s, ANSA says. Despite its lack of 
official status the Fraternity is present in 59 countries and counts 453 
priests and four bishops. It also runs seminaries in Switzerland, France, 
Australia, Argentina, the United States and Germany.
