Part 1: Principles [24'] Go to Part 2 (Answers to objections)>
Summary of Fr. Themann's talk
Fr. Themann begins by clearly explaining the concepts and distinctions necessary for an understanding of the question. He then indicates principles that served as guidelines in the various exchanges between Rome and the Superiors General.
Of particular interest is the comparison of Archbishop Lefebvre's attitude during the 1987-1988 talks with the Holy See and Bishop Fellay's dealings with the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in 2012-2013.
