Bishop Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary bishop of Astana, Kazakhstan, and among the most world’s most prominent and articulate defenders of the traditional Latin liturgy.
Born under Communism— to parents living in the gulag— Bishop Schneider speaks from experience about how to preserve the faith against hostile forces, and he argues persuasively that in our times, the most dangerous hostile forces are inside the Church.
Bishop Schneider has written a new book, The Catholic Mass: Steps to Restore the Centrality of God in the Liturgy, which is coming soon from Sophia Institute Press. During a visit to the publisher’s offices in New Hampshire, he made time to celebrate Mass on the campus of Thomas More College and later to speak with me (and with my wife Leila).
