  1. I grew up in the post-Vatican II church. Even though I was alive during the pontificates of Paul VI and John Paul I, I really only knew Pope John Paul II.

    Even as a young child, the Novus Ordo Missae and the post-Vatican II church were uninspiring and felt spiritually vacant. At one point in my adult years, I considered leaving the Catholic Church for the Greek Orthodox. I began to seriously explore the changes in the Mass and the Church, I came across the SSPX and Archbishop Lefebvre. While attempting to learn more about him, I naturally heard about the excommunications and the “schism.” So, I explored these matters further. Though I am no canon lawyer, it seemed that the greatest offense committed by Archbishop Lefebvre was being Catholic.

    I eventually attended my first High Mass at an SSPX chapel. For the first time in my life, I understood why so many saints were willing to die for the Faith. For the first time, I understood what the Eucharist was; what the Mass was. Thanks to the courage of Archbishop Lefebvre, I have been able to regularly assist at Holy Mass celebrated by the Institute of Christ the King.

    I used to joke that for me, the greatest miracle of John Paul II’s pontificate was remaining Catholic. In truth, I am a devout Catholic, because of Archbishop Lefebvre’s courage and willingness to suffer for Holy Mother Church. For this, I say: Deo Gratias, this prodigal son came home.

  2. I first attended the Extraordinary Form of Mass in 2005, in Rockford, Illinois. I am grateful for the work that the saintly Archbishop did to preserve the Extraordinary Form of Mass, and his work saving souls. Thanks be to God for Archbishop Lefebvre and his providential work.
