Visit of Bishop Athanasius Schneider

Bishop Athanasius Schneider, author of Dominus Est, is in England this May, below is his programme, he is a truly inspiring Bishop and well worth making the effort to go to meet and listen to.

I would draw the attention of clergy in particular to his talk on Wednesday evening at St Patrick's in Soho when he speak on "The Priest:: Image and Instrument of Christ". This talk is organised by the Confraternity of Catholic Clergy - contact Fr Richard Whinder if you intend to come. I suspect many of us need a bit of nourishment at some clerical company during this Easter season.

On 26th May the London Oratory evening Mass of St Philip would most likely - judging from past years - be a Sung High Mass, and in that case would start at 6.30pm, not 6pm.

Worth checking nearer the time.

I trust that bishop Schneider will once again, at some time during his visit, raise his earlier suggestion that there be a new “Syllabus of Errors” listing the many false interpretations that have been attributed to Vatican II, from within the Church.

Bishop Athanasius Schneider's teaching, exhortations, witness elevates the soul. He makes one truly desire to be holy. He is a light in the darkness.

I was privileged to attend Mass which Bishop Schneider celebrated at the FSSP church in Reading today, and I was privileged to sit with him for lunch afterwards and talk with him. A true gentleman and a very saintly man.
