DICI: Bishop Athanasius Schneider Visits SSPX USA Seminary

From the USA District of the SSPX:

Bishop Schneider visits USA seminary

February 14, 2015 
A brief report outlining the events and purpose of the recent SSPX seminary visits made by Bishop Schneider and Cardinal Brandmuller.
On February 11, 2015, Bishop Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary bishop of Astana in Kazakhstan, met with Bishop Bernard Fellay, SSPX Superior General, and also with several priests of the Society, at St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Winona (United States).
This was the second visit by Bishop Schneider to one of our seminaries. On January 16, 2015, he had visited the St. Cure d'Ars Seminary in Flavigny (France). Both meetings pertained to the question of the liturgical reform of Paul VI and the doctrinal presuppositions of theNovus Ordo Missae.

[Ed. Note:] One would think that considering Ecumenism, Protestant Bishops proclaimed as "brother bishops", and the tacit approval of "everyone can get to Heaven their own way as long as they know Jesus" meme, why the SSPX has not yet been welcomed with open arms by Rome? It seems everyone has been - Buddhists, Protestants, Animists, Gays, Atheists, Muslims, etc, etc, etc. I am somewhat dumbfounded that - considering the the Spirit of VII and God-Is-Love-In-Any-Form ecumenism - that Rome would act so harshly against another religious order (the FFI being the other) that simply seeks Jesus in their own way - namely, by holding fast to a Rite of worship that pseudo-ended in 1969?  

                      I mean...Where's the beef

If the late Tony Palmer can be proclaimed a "brother bishop"; if Pope Francis can pray with a Muslim Mufti; if past Popes, Cardinals and Bishops can set with heretics upon a stage at Assisi, then why is the SSPX still denied the "full communion" that other heretical sects apparently have??

Can someone please explain the reasoning here, for I see none. All I see is more confusion, error, compromise - and scandal - inflicted upon Holy Mother Church. 

St. Pius X, pray for us. 
St. Joseph, pray for us.

To Obtain the Grace of the Holy Spirit:

O GOD, before Whom every heart lies open, to Whom every will speaks, and from Whom no secret is hidden, purify, we beseech Thee, our hearts by the inpouring of the Holy Spirit, that we may come to love Thee perfectly and praise Thee worthily. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

Prayer to the Holy Spirit in Favor of the Church:

O HOLY SPIRIT, Creator, be propitious to the Catholic Church; by Thy heavenly power make it strong and secure against the attacks of its enemies, and renew in charity and grace the spirit of Thy servants whom Thou hast anointed, that they may glorify Thee and the Father and His only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
