The Pope is above the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. If the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith makes a decision against the Society, the Pope will intervene to rescind that decision.
For a moment, given that you know our opposition to the Council and since you nevertheless want to recognize us, I had concluded that you were ready to set aside or to postpone these problems with the Council. Among other things, that means ‘demoting the Council’, making it subject to opinions, to discussions—since there was talk about possible or even legitimate discussions. Therefore I thought as follows: Since you are making this gesture toward us, despite the problem, this means that you consider it more important to declare the Society Catholic than to uphold the Council at any cost. Since I see that finally you yourself seem to be imposing the Council, I must conclude that I was wrong. Please, then, tell us truly what you want.
