Very nice. We believe Archbishop Lefebvre will be declared a Saint one day, and we remember Church authorities also, at first, have for e.g. opposed St. Athanasius, St. Jeanne D'Arc (may she pray for France today, after the terrible Notre Dame fire), St. Padre Pio (who venerated Archbishop Lefebvre, and kissed H.G.'s ring with reverence!), before later applauding and even canonizing them. Cardinal Oddi said, "Merci, Monsignor" (Thank You, Monsignor] over Archbishop Lefebvre's tomb. Please also see this and the decree has at any rate now been declared deprived of all juridical effect. It is said that in France in less than 20 years, 50% of Priests will be from Tradition at current rates. Once Church authorities see that Tradition is the Future of the Church, they will praise Archbishop Lefebvre for defending it. https://fsspx.org/en/sspx%E2%80%99s-bishops"Accusation of schism
As for the accusation of schism, Archbishop Lefebvre always recognized the pope’s authority. Consecrating a bishop without pontifical mandate would be a schismatic act if one pretended to confer not just the fullness of the priesthood but also jurisdiction, a governing power over a particular flock. Only the pope, who has universal jurisdiction over the whole Church, can appoint a pastor to a flock and empower him to govern it. But Archbishop Lefebvre never presumed to confer anything but the full priestly powers of holy orders.
The Dean of the Faculty of Canon Law of the Catholic Institute of Paris, Fr. Patrick Valdrini, confirmed that “it is not the consecration of a bishop that creates a schism; what consummates the schism is to confer upon that bishop an apostolic mission” (Valeurs Actuelles, July 4, 1988 ) [in other words, simply consecrating an auxiliary Bishop, without habitual jurisdiction, is not a schism; only attempting to confer ordinary jurisdiction on the Bishop, which only the Pope can do, and which Archbishop Lefebvre always and clearly explained H.G. was not doing, and could not do, is such]...
Finally, on January 21, 2009, a decree of the Congregation for Bishops, signed by its Prefect, Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re, based on the faculties expressly granted by Pope Benedict XVI, declared the decree of July 1, 1988, to be deprived of any juridical effect."
Since the Pope has now granted even Ordinary Jurisdiction to the SSPX Bishops after 2015, as Bishop Fellay said, there is no problem. I wish the SSPX and Resistance would re-unite and work together as that is what Tradition needs. Tradition needs an Army of Priests. All working together under our good Traditional Catholic Bishops. With all Traditional Catholic Bishops united in Faith and Love, together with each other, and preferably with OJ from the Pope. And then the long war for Church Restoration can go on, it may take, who knows, 20,30 or 50 years, but it must be fought like this and won.
Centurio, a Traditional Catholic Blog, has this analysis and prediction on the future of Catholic Tradition in Archbishop Lefebvre's country.
"The interesting result is that by the year 2038, traditional priests will outnumber priests celebrating the new mass ...So in conclusion, if the Roman Catholic faith will be saved from secularism in France, it will be the achievement of the traditional groups of priests celebrating the Traditional Mass such as FSSPX, FSSP and ICRSS." https://centurioweblog.blogspot.com/2014/07/traditional-priests-in-france-until-2050.html?m=1
