Traditional Pontifical Masses at Holy Innocents (NYC) - Bishop Athanasius Schneider

Bishop Athanasius Schneider in NYC
The Most Reverend Athanasius Schneider, Auxiliary Bishop of Maria Santissima in Astana, Kazakhstan & Titular Bishop of Celerina, will come to the Church of the Holy Innocents to celebrate:
§  A Pontifical Solemn Mass at the Faldstool on Monday, October 24 at 6pm.
§  A Pontifical Low Mass on Tuesday, October 25 at 6PM. After this Holy Mass, His Excellency will give a Conference on Christ the King & the Social Kingship of Christ.
Everyone is encouraged to attend these wonderful Masses and events.


Bishop Schneider is an absolute defender of the traditional and immemorial practice of receiving Holy Communion kneeling and on the tongue – so much so that his book Dominus est deals exclusively with this theme. Dominus est was published in Italian, and has since been translated into English, German, Estonian, Lithuanian, Polish, Hungarian and Chinese. (“The awareness of the greatness of the Eucharistic mystery is demonstrated in a special way by the manner in which the Body of the Lord is distributed and received.”).

Bishop Schneider has also been an unconditional defender of the permanent and infallible teaching of the Church on the definition and composition of the family. Moreover, he has called for a clarification on Amoris Laetitia in order to avoid confusion and abusive interpretations that would lead to “a permanent, deliberate and free violation of God’s sixth Commandment and of the sacredness and indissolubility of a true and valid marriage.”
