Benedict the Healer...

Our Holy Father has written a beautiful letter to the bishops of the whole world, which is both clear and humble, concerning the confusion which surrounded the lifting of the excommunications of the bishops who lead the "traditionalist" movement begun in 1988 by Archbishop Lefebvre. Here is the text of his letter.

George Weigel wrote an excellent article which comments on the letter, and it's well worth reading. You can find that article here.
