Archbishop Lefebvre to the Four Bishops Elect, June 1988



“If we ‘came to an agreement’ with Rome 
on that basis, then the diocesan bishops 
would say “Then come along and join in the 
dioceses” and LITTLE BY LITTLE TRADITION 
WOULD BE COMPROMISED ... It is time to 
take a second decision TO FACE UP TO THIS 
ROME. What else can we do? If they insist 
that it is worse this time round, because this 
time it could mean excommunication, I reply 
that the basic problem remains unchanged: 
ROME MEANS TO EXTERMINATE TRADITION ”

(Archbishop Lefebvre, Letter to the Four 
Bishops Elect, June 12, 1988)
