Angelus Press translated this book from the French in 1995. The Rev. Fr. Pivert has studied law and jurisprudence, specializing in questions of Catholic Church's Law. He explains the subject so that the layman may understand it.
This book should be read by all the faithful. I have heard the word Schism used as lately as last Sunday in a Chapel Newsletter when talking about Traditional Churches in general, and in reference to Archbishop Lefebvre from the mid 1970's all through the 1980's. This book takes you step by step through all the points of contention and law. And shows' how there is not now, nor ever has been a Schism between the Traditionalist and with Rome.
In support of his position he uses both the 1917 and 1983 Codes of Canon Law to make his case. In addition he shows how the continuation of the Episcopacy is an unchangeable law of the church. After reading this I can see that the word Schism should never have even been uttered.
