Apologia Pro Marcel Lefebvre (Trilogy)
Michael Davies' monumental Apologia series now in Hardback!
Mr. Davies defends Archbishop Lefebvre and his battle for the Faith during the crucial battles of the 1970's and early 1980's. These books are full of documentation and poignant analysis. The historical value of these works, from the pen of the man who declared at the First Annual Walter Matt Memorial Dinner (January, 2004), "Archbishop Lefebvre is a Saint," cannot be overestimated.
Apologia Pro Marcel Lefebvre, Volume I - This book is certainly one of great historical value. Portrays the dramatic conflict relating to the grievances between Archbishop Lefebvre and the Vatican under Pope Paul VI. Depicts the role of one who had the foresight to recognize that he could not defend orthodoxy and at the same time accept reforms "themselves oriented towards the cult of man." Completely documented. 496 pg
Apologia Pro Marcel Lefebvre, Volume II - This volume covers the story of Archbishop Lefebvre's relations with the Vatican up to the end of 1979. The negotiations between the Archbishop and the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith form the principal feature of the book. 416 pg
Apologia Pro Marcel Lefebvre, Volume III - Covers 1979-1982, the beginning of the pontificate of John Paul II. Davies records many of the Holy Father's directives, how they were opposed by the Bishops, and why it was necessary for Archbishop Lefebvre and the SSPX to avoid all compromise in preserving Catholic Truth. Completes the series by considering Abp. Lefebvre within the broader perspective of the crisis in the Church. 496 pg
