Pope to hold meeting with Roman Curia to discuss reforms and SSPX schism

.- According to Vatican sources, Pope Benedict XVI has scheduled an unplanned meeting with the presidents of the different Vatican dicasteries, at which he will discuss reforms of the Curia and relations with the Saint Pius X, Lefebvrist schism.

The extraordinary April 7th meeting announcement comes after an ordinary meeting which took place last month, at which the Holy Father asked the dicastery heads about universal approval of the Missal of St. Pius V, the rite which was in force prior to Vatican II.

During this unusual second meeting, the Pontiff is expected to solicit opinions about what to do with the Missal of St. Pius V and about a possible canonical formula for re-incorporating the followers of the schismatic Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre into the Church.

The reorganization of the Roman Curia, which has already begun with the folding of four dicasteries into two, announced last weekend, is also expected to be discussed.

According to Vatican sources, the issue of reorganization of the Curia might also be discussed during the consistory that Pope has convened for March 23 and 24.
