“[…] Betting on an agreement with the Pope is an illusion. The Pope will grant us everything we want on the disciplinary and liturgical level, but on the condition of admitting his modernist ideas about religious freedom and ecumenism, that is, of our Catholic faith.

No hope must be seen on that side. Rome is occupied by modernism and liberalism! When will Our Lord decide to stop this scandal? He is the teacher! We wait patiently and have confidence in the Lord and His holy Mother who know better than us this tragic situation[...] ”

“After being absent for 15 days, I take care to answer your good letter, accompanied by numerous interesting documents.
But I must tell you that it is the letter of Bishop Perl that has held my attention. He doesn't flatter you by saying that your community is a "sister" of Chémeré!

Do not rediscover it, I beg you, you will raise doubts among your friends. The only answer to give is that they initiate the Council Reform to remove the errors. It is only then that we can trust them.

Whatever the canonical privileges they may give, their acceptance means for them communion with the Holy See, with the Pope and with the Council, therefore an implicit acceptance of all that modernism that we fight following St. Pius X and all [Fathers] before the Council.

They want to neutralize Tradition, so that it is no longer an obstacle for their ecumenist companies and for the Revolution in the Church […]

Do not have a point of contact with the one who is in charge of destroying Tradition. They don't know what to do to divide us and are surprised at so much resistance. They seem not to understand that it is a problem of Faith from the beginning. ”

“[…]Roman modernists are bandits, revolutionaries under sheep skins. They have no supernatural spirit. It is about this that we must take our effort: relearning to live on faith like the Apostles, the Martyrs, the Fathers of the Church and Saint Thomas Aquinas, who has achieved the tour de force of using all the sciences for the queen of the sciences; the theology that is worked in Heaven by the grace of the Holy Spirit. The Summa is the great catechism of Saint Thomas Aquinas and that of the Church even more than that of Trent. I try to explain this to the seminarians so that they have the worry of living from the best catechism that exists and that they are taught. It is very important that in our seminarians we keep a safe and approved line by the Church, that of Saint Thomas, which should give us pastoral principles that give the faithful true spirituality away from Jansenism and charismatism. The morality that is limited to the commandments is disposable. The moral of grace, of the virtues, of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which does not forget the commandments, that which Saint Thomas advocates is more in line with the spirit of Our Lord, of the Gospel, and even more urgent for the fervent souls. It is time to return the Catholic faith exciting, generous, missionary, as it was for the first Christians. […] ”

Ecône, April 22, 1989

“[…]The consecrations have been the occasion to tell the true traditionalists, refusing to reconcile Rome. Unity has been made on this point and the division has been made with the ralliés to modernist Rome […] ”.
"So let us be confident, let us not be unprepared, let us not be outflanked, let us be wise, vigilant, fighting against those who are trying to tear the faith out of our souls and morality out of our hearts, so that we may remain Catholics, remain united to the Blessed Virgin Mary, remain united to the Roman Catholic Church, remain faithful children of the Church."- Abp. Lefebvre
