A General Congregation of the Society of Jesus ...

... is in the offing (Via Zenit.) Given that this happens rarely, this is news indeed. And, it seems, the Superior-General (Il Papa Nero, the Black Pope -- no, not race. Vestments.), Fr. Hans Kolvenbach, will resign and the Society will elect a new Superior. [Here's Rocco's now confirmed rumors from a little while back.]

And in what could be bigger news, an Italian journal is reporting that the Holy Father wants to lift the excommunication against the followers of the late Archbishop Lefebvre. [I wonder what happens then. Do the SSPX and the FSSP merge? :-)]

[Gosh -- what am I thinking? Reconciliation with a bunch of traddy nuts -- howsoever important, is really not more important than a General Congregation of the largest religious order in the Church]
