Lefebvrians expel controversial Bishop Richard Williamson
After Williamson was told of his expulsion, he was given a time line to declare his submission. But according to the statement, he responded with an open letter where he asks the Superior General to resign. For years now, the Vatican and the traditionalist group have tried to reach an agreement so that the Society of St. Pius X can be in full Communion with the Church. So far, the negotiations have been unsuccessful.
