Traditional Anglo-Papist

Requiescat in pace

From Rorate Caeli:
15 years ago, Archbishop Marcel-Fran├žois Lefebvre died in Martigny, Switzerland, on the anniversary of the most blessed Annunciation of the Virgin Mary and of the Incarnation of God. Regardless of one's opinion of some events of his life, or of some of his decisions, or of some of his stronger words, it would be wrong not to acknowledge that without him the struggle for the preservation of much of what we cherish would probably have been lost. That 15 years after his death "the question of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre" is still discussed in the highest halls of the Church shows that the global movement for the advancement of the Traditional Roman Rite is inseparably linked to this passionate man, whose name still causes passionate discussions.


  • It must be said that without Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre that tradition within the Roman Church would have been extirpated by the Modernist establishment that goes without saying. Archbishop Lefebvre whatever mistakes were made I believe did what he did with the best of intentions in order to preserve Roman Catholic tradition. Eternal Rest Grant unto him O Lord and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. May he and all the souls of the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen
