Vatican clarification on SSPX

Comment: the Congregation for Bishops has pointed out some pretty obvious truths, which were obscure to the world's secular press.
-The Holy Father does not share Bishop Williamson's views on the Shoah.
-Williamson and the others have no legitimate ministry within the Church.
-Williamson's views are incompatible with his being given an episcopal ministry. 
-The SSPX has no canonical status.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
