LEFEBVRE and the
March 30, 1988
Letter Of Cardinal Ratzinger
To Archbishop Lefebvre
Fr. du Chalard
has let me know your favorable response to the proposition which
I had made to you in my letter of March 18, of a meeting, as well
as the names of the two experts which you have agreed to appoint.
I thank you for this.
I am now in
a position to indicate that this meeting is scheduled for Tuesday
the 12th at Rome and if necessary on Wednesday, April 13.
The Holy Father has appointed as moderator the Reverend
Fr. Benoît Duroux, O.P.; as theologian, Don Fernando Ocariz and
as canonist Don Tarcisio Bertone, SDB. All three are consultants
for the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
coming week I will let Fr. du Chalard know by phone the exact location
and timetable of this meeting. We foresee that participants
will have to take their lunch there.
my best wishes for the holy feast of Easter, I assure you of my
prayers and ask you to accept the expression of my respectful and
dedicated feelings in the Lord.
