2012 Preamble <--> 1988 Protocol

Posted by The Editor on March 11, 2013 at 5:55 PM

In May 1988 Archbishop Lefebvre, under pressure from some of his priests (Fr. Schmidberger?), signed an agreement with Rome. He immediately regretted it and withdrew his signature the following day. He would later write regarding the 1988 Protocol: “Had I signed the agreement we would have been finished in one year.”


The reader may wish to compare the text of the 1988 Protocol, which Rome proposed to the Archbishop, with the text of the 2012 'Preamble' which Bishop Fellay proposed to Rome. The similarities are, to say the least, striking.


The text of the 1988 Protocol, together with an article by Fr. Peter Scott, can be read here.
