Bishop Athanasius SchneiderBefore the recent Catholic Identity Conference, I sat down with Bishop Athanasius Schneider and asked him a few questions about the Traditional Latin Mass, Amoris Laetitia, Cardinal Burke and the Dubia, Communion in the hand, the coming desecration of the Eucharist, resisting Pope Francis, and the increasingly obvious failure that is the Second Vatican Council.

Please keep in mind that it was not my intent to “grill the bishop”. I have known him for some time and have come to respect him more than I can say. It was my intent to assist our readers and friends around the world to get to know this most courageous churchman—a man of faith and deep appreciation for the traditions of Holy Mother Church.
Bishop Schneider understands very well what it means to be part of an “underground Church.”  He was born in the Soviet Union to ethnic Germans from Ukraine and, after World War II, young Anton (his name at the time) Schneider’s family was sent by Stalin’s regime to a gulag in the Ural Mountains. There they became closely involved with the underground Church, and when his family was finally released from the concentration camp, they left Central Asia for Estonia.

In 1973, shortly after making his first Holy Communion in secret, His Excellency emigrated with his family to West Germany.  In 1982, he joined the Canons Regular of the Holy Cross of Coimbra in Austria, where he took the religious name of Athanasius. 

He was ordained a priest in 1990, and on June 2, 2006 Father Athanasius Schneider was appointed a bishop by Pope Benedict and later that same year consecrated Bishop at the Altar of the Chair of Saint Peter in the Vatican.

He is a champion of the Holy Eucharist, having years ago distinguished himself by outspoken resistance to Communion in the Hand. He is also quite candid about the fact that all of his private Masses are the TLM.

He has supported traditional Catholics all over the world, including those associated with the Society of St. Pius X.  Together with the bishops of Kazakhstan, he was among the first to issue a statement of resistance to the errors of Amoris Lateitia, and has celebrated high profile Traditional Latin Masses on both sides of the Atlantic— for example, on the Chartres Pilgrimage two years ago, the Blessed Karl Mass in Washington, D.C. just this year, at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Wisconsin last month, and most recently at the Catholic Identity Conference just outside of Pittsburgh, PA.

His Excellency’s keynote address was perhaps the highpoint of the CIC, by the way, and it is available (along with the other talks and interviews from the conference), as part of the CIC On-Demand video package. Readers can subscribe to that package HERE.

God bless Bishop Schneider for his courage, his unflappable faith and his fearless leadership during this dark period of crisis in the Church.  Please pray for the health and protection of His Excellency Bishop Athanasius Schneider.  MJM

  • Pope Francis and the SSPX Regularization
    New From Remnant TV (RTV)...

    As the Year of Mercy closes, Pope Francis extends permission to priests of the Society of St. Pius X to hear Confessions. But, the rumors mills were wrong. The Pope did not regularize the SSPX. Why not? Is this a good thing? Where do you come down on the "schism" of the SSPX. Michael Matt goes into why some Catholics are breathing a sigh of relief this Thanksgiving. Plus, a cameo appearance from Archbishop Lefebvre himself.

  • THE CATHOLIC RESTORATION: Chartres Pilgrimage 2018

    Tired of apologizing for being Catholic? Sick of every other religion in the world being praised while yours is condemned? Weary of hearing about the rights of man, with no thought given to the rights of God and His Church? Done with CINOs (Catholics In Name Only)? Here's the answer. On Pentecost weekend in France, nearly 20,000 Catholics from all over the world--of every race and color, men and women, old and young--came together to worship God, to honor Our Lady and to send a message to the world: the anti-Catholic revolution has failed! We're back, we're here to stay and we're not apologizing for being proud Catholic soldiers of Jesus Christ. The Catholic counterrevolution is in full swing, and it's a youth movement. All for the greater honor and glory of Almighty God. Viva Cristo Rey! Vive le Christ Roi! Long live Christ the King!
