Traditional bishops have an Apostolic mission from the lawful Catholic bishops even without a papal mandate. When dioceses combine, all lawful clerics of each automatically become lawful clerics of the new combined diocese. As Lumen Gentium dissolved all diocesan boundaries worldwide, there is remaining only single, worldwide diocese, namely the Eternal diocese of Rome. The true canonical status of the Traditional bishops is that they are therefore assistant bishops to the Diocese of Rome. Lumen Gentium also made the bishops of the Church a "college" and mandated that they would remain such until Lumen Gentium itself is repealed.
