The Church traces its origin to the Ancient Catholic Church of the Netherlands, the See of Utrecht.St. Willibrord evangelized the Netherlands, bringing Catholicism to the country, in the 7th century.
Willibrord had been consecrated by Pope Sergius I in 696 in Rome. In 1145 Pope Eugene III granted the Cathedral Chapter of Utrecht the right to elect bishops, after such been requested by the Holy Roman Emperor Conrad III and Bishop Heribert of Utrecht. The Fourth Lateran Council confirmed this in 1215. In 1520 Pope Leo x issued the papal bull Debitum Pastoralis, giving extraordinary powers to Philip of Burgundy, 57th Bishop of Utrecht, essentially removing the ability of any external authority to “in the first instance, have his cause evoked to any external tribunal, not even under pretense of any apostolic letters whatever; and that all such proceedings should be, ipso facto, null and void”.
Better to have loved and lost, than to have never loved at all.
