Bishop Athanasius Schneider, author of 'Dominus Est', a short book about the importance of receiving Communion on the tongue, is coming to England at the invitation of the Latin Mass Society.

He will be giving a talk at the LMS One Day Conference on Saturday 24th May, alongside Joseph Pearce, Fr Michael Mary of the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer (from Papa Stronsay in the Orkneys), and others.

We have helped to create quite a schedule for him, which will take him to five different dioceses in ten days. I hope that he becomes better known in England. At the Conference he will be talking about the Traditional Mass as a tool of Evagelisation; he will address various other topics to other audiences on his tour.

  1. Lets hope he mentions once again his earlier proposal for a Correct Reading of the Second Vatican Council,effectively, a new syllabus of erroneous interpretations of that Council.

    He is a light in the darkness in the Church; he is one of the very few holy bishops I've ever come across. I pray we will have more such priests and bishops.
