Talks between the Vatican and Lefebvrists have begun

2009-10-26

In the first meeting at the Vatican, the two delegations drafted a plan and work schedule.

The Lefebvrists don’t accept certain points of the teachings of recent popes nor some principles of the Second Vatican Council, like religious freedom, the possibility of dialogue with other religions and churches and collegiality among bishops.

In January, Benedict XVI lifted the excommunication of the bishops ordained irregularly by Marcel Lefebvre.
But since their status is still unclear they’re not considered part of  the Catholic hierarchy.

According to their data, Lefebvrists have more than 400 priests, several hundred religious and seminarians and about 100,000 followers worldwide.
