Marcel Lefebvre together with four bishops excommunicated. Let us share appropriate elements of their email to you, combined with the video he delivered us. Listed here is their email.
This online video shows the lie which they “have an apostolic mandate. “
Within the rubrics, the rite of episcopal consecration, the assistant priest presents the priests become consecrated as bishops, therefore the major consecrator Lefebrve is directed into the rubrics to inquire of associated with the associate priest, “Have you got an apostolic mandate? ” (Habetis mandatum apostolicum? – constantly thought as a written papal purchase to conduct the consecrations).
That real question is posed by Abp. Lefebvre at moment 8:28. At moment 8:30 when you look at the video clip, Fr. hot russian brides Schmittberger demonstrably responds saying, “Habemus” (‘We get one’), thus lying inside the liturgy it self.
That this apostolic mandate is to be described as a written document through the reigning pontiff is obvious through the next terms, and through the rubrics by themselves, for the major consecrator will be designed to state: “Legatur” (‘Let it is read’).
The archbishop did say “Legatur, ” but of program, there was clearly no mandate that is papal be read.
