Book Description: Faithful Remnant or Fanatic Schismatics? It can be difficult to distinguish defenders from defectors. Many traditionalist schisms that sprang up after the Second Vatican Council are filled with devotion to the Blessed Mother. They remain extremely conservative with regard to most moral issues afflicting the Western world today. They practice a strict reverence before the Blessed Sacrament during their traditional Latin liturgies. It can be easy to sympathize with such seemingly devout but truly disaffected Catholics. Now More Catholic Than the Pope examines one such group – the Society of St. Pius X – and explains how its prime architect and figurehead, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, and his followers chose to cut themselves off from the Church. Here is the history of the society, from its beginning in France, to its rise and fall within the Catholic Church, to Pope John Paul II’s fraternal but ultimately fruitless efforts at reconciliation. Here, too, in a series of carefully chosen appendices, are the clear, concise, canonical answers to the issues Society members continue to raise, the arguments they still offer. "We earnestly hope that the evidence we present in this book will help extreme traditionalists to see the mistakes made by the SSPX and similar groups, abandon them, and come home to the Church." If your loved one is a member of an extreme traditionalist group … if representatives have been urging you to become involved … please read this book.
