How Bishop Schneider Came To Visit Children Of Mary

From the Children of Mary web page. (What a superb Salve Regina!)

How Bishop Schneider Came To Visit Children Of Mary: We saw a video clip of him (on Cathcon!) being interviewed about his book, Dominus Est, about reverence towards Our Eucharistic Lord. We were very impressed with his love for Our Lord and the humble manner in which he presented his ideas on how we can restore reverence to Jesus in the Holy Eucharist. After seeing the video, we sent him our CD and prayer cards and told him that if he were ever in the United States, we would love to have him visit us. A few weeks later he wrote and said he was coming!

We feel greatly blessed that this holy man came to visit us.

Note: Bishop Schneider's book, Dominus Est is now being translated into English and should be available by the end of this year. The book includes interesting stories about some of the bishop's experiences growing up in a soviet occupied country. For example, how he made his First Holy Communion in secret, stealing away at night, traveling by train to the church and returning to his home after dark the next night. We ask Our Heavenly Father to let this book spread throughout the Church and help restore love and reverence to Our Eucharistic Lord.

What a great story for Thursday- the day on which the Eucharist was instituted.
