LEFEBVRISTS - A SURPRISING COMMENT BY BISHOP TISSIER DE MALLERAIS

BISHOP BERNARD TISSIER DE MALLERAIS OF THE SSPX
In 1997 the radical traditionalist Remnant Newspaper published a lengthy interview with SSPX Bishop Bernard Tissier De Mallerais, in which - among many other things - His Lordship made the following responses:
                      



"SH: There are always troublemakers, especially on the Internet, who quote so-called anonymous “inside sources” who often know really nothing, and who seem to  seek to splinter the Society by talking about a so-called “schism within the Society” if and when Bishop Fellay were to make a “deal” with Rome.  My question is this: when Bishop Fellay speaks, or makes a statement, does he so “on behalf of the bishops” of the Society?
HL:  No.  I would say he speaks as the Superior General of the Society.  Simply that.

SHSo, as bishops your primary role is…

HL:  To give Confirmations and do Ordinations, simply.  That is the role that Archbishop Lefebvre gave us.  So we have no “leading role” in the Society, per se, we simply submit to the Superior General."


Whether this simple submission to the Superior General still holds, seems now to be in question.
