Marcel Lefebvre: An Example of Holiness

Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, the one who would not offer "fruits of the earth and work of human hands" An outcast because he offered what Our Lord instructed. He would not co operate with the condemned doctrine of ecumenism, he wanted to preserve the priesthood, and hold fast to tradition, as Our Lord God demanded.

Perhaps no one else in the modern Church has been more calumniated and despised than His Excellency, for the reason that he "delivered that which [he] also received" (cf 1 Cor 15:3).  Michael Davies' "Apologia Pro Marcel" (available online) and "The Horn of the Unicorn" by Professor David Allen White each help illustrate an unbiased life of this man, who should be declared a saint of God.

I encourage all of you to read these two texts if you have been led to believe that Marcel Lefebvre was a "rebel", "excommunicated", or "disobedient."

Thanks for the suggestions, Matthew. I'm relatively new to coming around to the SSPX and have read some but not either of those two. I'll look into them.

Great, valuable blogsite, by the way!
