Bp. Bernard Tissier de Mallerais

This is the definitive biography of Archbishop Lefebvre, written by one of his closest friends, Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais. 

Marcel Lefebvre's (1905-91) life is fascinating. After attending the French Seminary in Rome he joined his brother in the African missions. Consecrated bishop at age 42, one year later he was named the Holy See's Apostolic Delegate for French-speaking Africa. In 1962, he was elected Superior General of the 5,000-member Holy Ghost Fathers. John XXIII made him an Assistant to the Papal Throne and a member of the Preparatory Commission for Vatican II. At the Council, he was a leader of the Coetus Internationalis Patrium–those bishops who vigorously fought the modernists. In 1968, he resigned his post as Superior General rather than preside over the destruction of his beloved order. He went into retirement in Rome, only to be called on again and again by seminarians seeking his advice on where to get a solid formation. This led to the founding of the SSPX in 1970. All Catholics, particularly those attached to the Tridentine Mass, owe a huge debt of gratitude to this man. We ought to know him better.

Critics have said: "magisterial," "well-researched, serious, and honest," "reveals unsuspected facets. A very complete work," "a rich, important contribution to contemporary religious history," "a literary event," "a landmark."

Influential French traditional Catholic publisher Jean Madiran said, "...the fruit of several years of considerable labor. The book is rich in documentation, often unpublished, and in many theological observations."

718 pp. Softcover. 54 photographs, 16 maps and charts. Over 2,000 references and 1,500 names cited.
