The Holy Father has written a letter to the bishops of the world on the subject of the lifting of the excommunications of the bishops of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Pius X. The letter comes in responce to the many vicious attacks made against the Holy Father by so many people both within and without the Church. The letter was written in German, and is available in English translation curtesy of The New Liturgical Movement: The Papal Letter; the letter may also be read with Fr. Zuhlsdorf's inimitable emphases and comments: Benedict's Letter; and finally, here is the official translation on the Vatican website: Letter of His Holiness et cetera.
VIVA IL PAPA!
