Francis Extends Authority of SSPX to Hear Confessions

Pope Francis released a new Apostolic Letter, Mercy and Peace, yesterday that authorizes the SSPX to continue hearing confessions and absolving penitents. The original authority only extended through the Year of Mercy which ended a few days ago with the closing of the Holy Doors. I haven't had a chance to read the entire letter yet which, compared to the marathon of Amoris Laetitia, should be a breeze since it's only 15 pages including footnotes.

If you want to read the section that pertains to the SSPX click on the link above and go to section 12.
