"All must be restored in Christo Domino - "in Christ the Lord," in Rome as elsewhere.

Let us love to see how the ways of Divine Providence and Wisdom pass by Rome. We will conclude that one cannot be Catholic without being Roman. This applies also to Catholics who have neither the Latin language nor the Roman liturgy. If they remain Catholic, it is because they remain Roman like the Maronites, for example, by the ties to the Catholic and Roman French culture which formed them.

It is, moreover, an error to speak of Roman culture as Western. The converts from Judaism brought with them from the Orient all that was Christian, all that which in the Old Testament was preparation and could be a component of Christianity, all that which Our Lord had assumed and that the Holy Ghost had inspired the Apostles to adopt. How many times do the epistles of St. Paul teach us on this subject!

God willed that Christianity, cast in a certain way in the Roman mold, receive from it a vigorous and exceptional expansion. All is grace in the divine plan and Our Divine Savior disposes all as the Romans are said to act, that is, "cum consilio et patientia or suaviter et fortiter" - "with counsel and patience, sweetly and mightily" (Wis 8:1).

Ours is the duty to guard "

Who said this?
Is this ICK propaganda?

If Archbishop Lefebvre was suggesting that one must become Latinized even if not belonging to the Latin church in order to be truly Catholic, then this is just more reason to reject SSPX since it means someone other than God was whispering into the ear of Lefebvre's heart.
There is a new thread on letters allegedly from Bps. Tissier, de Galarreta, and Williamson, and the response of the SSPX General Council to them.

Or maybe someone other than God was whispering into Michael Cerularius ear.

Clearly, but what does that have to do with this?
