AuthorBishop Gerald de Proenca Sigaud
In 1959, in preparation for Vatican Council II, Domenico Cardinal Tardini sent out a letter requesting suggestions from all the world's bishops. Bishop Gerald de Proenca Sigaud, Bishop of Jacarezinho in Brazil sent back this reply on August 22, 1959 to the Cardinal.
This response is remarkable for its clarity and foresight. One can only imagine that these issues would have been taken up by the council if the work of the Preparatory Council (of which Archbishop Lefebvre was a member) was not disgarded in the first session.
