AuthorAbp. Marcel Lefebvre
Out of print for 13 years, A Bishop Speaks is back! This new, expanded edition includes those parts unpublished in the original English edition. Posthumous thanks are due to Mr. Michael Davies, RIP, who continually encouraged us to reprint this book while revising "Pope John's Council" and "Pope Paul's New Mass". He said, "You must reprint "A Bishop Speaks"! It's a very important work." He referred to and quoted from his old copy constantly.
This book is a chronological collection of key letters, sermons, conferences, and interviews (1963-1976) of Archbishop Lefebvre that are critical to understanding his founding of the SSPX, his defense of Catholic Tradition, and his opposition to Vatican II and the New Mass.
"We hope that this English edition will be widely read. May it also help many Catholics - bishops, priests, and laity - to understand the tragedy that is ruining the Church, and the new betrayal of which Our Lord Jesus Christ is the Victim," said Archbishop Lefebvre in the first English edition.
