An Encouraging Development

Some interesting news over on RORATE CÆLI:

"...the Transalpine Redemptorists, a religious order which has always been closely linked with the SSPX, have made their official position known [about the revision of the Good Friday prayer by Pope Benedict XVI]:

'In what concerns the Solemn Prayers of the Good Friday Liturgy, the Transalpine Redemptorists will obey with submission the newly promulgated Prayer for the Jews as ordered by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI on February 4th 2008.

Fr. Michael Mary, C.SS.R.
Vicar General
8 February, 2007'

This is encouraging because this is a group not in full communion with the Holy See. This, however, is a significant gesture of communion on their part.
