From the Fringes of Econe....

Word from allies of Richard Williamson, the SSPX bishop in schism known for his bombastic statements regarding Jews, Muslims and racial minorities, is that the tomorrow's convocation of the 22 Lefebvrist groups at Flavigny "could get ugly," implying that Williamson -- who has been seen in many corners as the biggest obstacle to a unity deal -- is prepared to dig in his heels and make the process much more complicated than it has to be.

Last night, it was first reported here that Williamson was seen as "obstinate" toward a unity pact.

This will make manifest and bring to the fore a long-festering divide within the Society.

As always, keep it here for more.... We are less than 12 hours away.
