I am a Catholic lay faithful, living in a little country of Asia, Japan. At first I would like to apologize to you for my not being able to write English very well because I have not been educated very much. I do not know a lot about the nuance of English expression. So please forgive me even if I was rude in writing English to you. It is not my true intention.
I sincerely appreciate all your consideration for churches of all the world, and especially the Motu Proprio, Summorum Pontificum.
I am writing to you regarding The Priestly Society of Saint Pius X, though I am not a complete supporter of that society. I have heard many pros and cons about this matter up to now. But I can never think SSPX（or FSSPX）to have a mistake in doctrine itself or in essence of Catholic faith. I have thought about that many many times, but I have always reached the same conclusion.
When you granted an interview to a journalist, Mr. Vittorio Messori, in 1984, you told : "But why only the popes up to Pius XII and not beyond? Is perhaps obedience to the Holy See divisible according to years or according to the nearness of a teaching to one's own already-established convictions?." But, our Holy Father, I would like to invite you to simple imagination. Please please IMAGINE that they were in the times of Pope Pius V or Pope Pius IX or Pope Pius X. Would they be hated? Would they be expelled by Catholic Church? I do not think so at all! They would be certainly LOVED by Popes of each times. And I can hardly believe that it is possible that the same person would be loved in a certain times and would be expelled in another times, in Church. It is very very strange!
Please do not laugh at my simple argument. I do not understand difficult study well. But please note that human eyes with a simple nature can sometimes reach the essence of things directly.
Holy Father, I think that you should at least withdraw the excommunication declared against Archbishop Lefebvre and a few other people concerned. Because, I say simply once again, they would be undoubtedly loved by Popes before the Second Vatican Council on just the way they are. Legally or politically, this may be very difficult. But I think that you should find a narrow path for them and you can do that. I say this for the justice of our Church rather than for the profit of one society. If you do not do this, I say to you humbly, our Church will NEVER have true justice in its hand.
Please declare that he（or they）at least did not deserve the excommunication. And please give them some place formally in Church. And please do not demand the attitude of avoiding ALL polemics from them. And please do not force the New Mass on them. Please accept them as a considerably stubborn people or problem children without sense of cooperation（while I myself do not always think so of them）. Anyway they at least did not deserve the EXCOMMUNICATION at all, I believe. Please perform justice in such a form in our Church. Otherwise I cannot trust Church enough.
I humbly ask your holiness, your blessings.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
