LEFEBVRE and the
May 6, 1988
Letter of Archbishop Lefebvre
to Cardinal Ratzinger
I have attentively read the letter which you just addressed to me,
in which you tell me your intentions concerning the episcopal consecration
of a member of the Society on June 30 next.
Since these intentions are in sharp contrast with what has been
accepted during our dialogue on May 4, and which have been signed
in the Protocol yesterday, I wish to inform you that the release
of the press communiqué has to be deferred.
I earnestly wish that you reconsider your position in conformity
with the results of the dialogue, so that the communiqué60
may be released.
In this hope, please Excellency,...
Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger
