25 ANNIVERSARY OF THEEPISCOPAL CONSECRATIONSOF THE SSPX BISHOPSBishop Bernard Tissier de MalleraisBishop Alfonso de GalarretaBishop Bernard Fellay
30 June 1988
At the beginning of the rite of the consecration the following dialoguetakes place between the consecrating bishops and the Archpriest who presents the bishops-elect for consecration:Do you have the Apostolic Mandate?We have it!Let it be read.We have this Mandate from the Roman Church, always faithful to theHoly Tradition, which She has received from the Holy Apostles. ThisHoly Tradition is the Deposit of Faith which the Church orders us tofaithfully transmit to all men for the salvation of their souls.Since the Second Vatican Council until this day, the authorities of theRoman Church are animated by the spirit of modernism. They haveacted contrary to the Holy Tradition, “they cannot bear sounddoctrine, they turned their ears from the Truth and followed fables” assays St. Paul in his second Epistle to Timothy (4:3-5). This is why wereckon of no value all the penalties and all the censures inflicted bythese authorities.As for me, “I am offered up in sacrifice and the moment for mydeparture is arrived” (II Tim 4:6). I had the call of souls who ask for the Bread of Life, Who is Christ, to be broken for them. “I have pityupon the crowd” (Mk. 8:2). It is for me therefore a grave obligation totransmit the grace of my episcopacy to these dear priests here present,in order that in turn they may confer the grace of the priesthood onother numerous and holy clerics, instructed in the Holy Traditions of the Catholic Church
