I have heard that you are in this moment in bad health. This is why I have taken the
audacity to tell you the following:
You have been consecrated a bishop by Cardinal Lienart, (who) never believed in our
religion, so your consecration by him has been nulled. I am ready to consecrate
you a bishop or you can find a bishop to consecrate you secretly.
As regards the ecclesiastics that you made priests, find a bishop, for example
myself, to consecrate them. All this, is in strict secrecy, known only between
you and I.
Pierre Martin Ngo-dihn-Thuc, Archbishop (Photocopy of the ORIGINAL HANDWRITTEN TEXT IN FRENCH letter by Msgr. Thuc sent to Lefebvre - 100% authentic.)
