Comments to the “Novus Ordo” of the “Second Vatican Council” currently is in so-called “traditionalist” circles sometimes a statement by Yves Maury (Pius Brotherhood of Marcel Lefebvre) pointed out, that the so-called new Episcopal ordination is invalid. For orientation: 1 the Episcopal ordination is a sacrament. Even if a not Bishop legally would have been determined for the Bishop, he would be Bishop then really only if he received episcopal consecration in a sacramentally valid Rite even. 2. with his heresies, the so-called “Vatican Council II” (V2, 1962-65) founded a new anti-Christian religion.

As a theological justification see E.g. Under most conditions Philippe Lavertu would agree. the very short article by Anthony Cekada, “Why the New Bishops Are Not True bishops” (2006), which is specifically against Lefebvre-position is. 5. of course, everyone from the invalidity of this rite can convince if he refuses to clean.
