“I am very pleased to recommend Father Yves Normandin’s account to all who seek an understanding of what is happening within the Catholic Church”
-Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, Preface, Priest out in the Cold
This is the story of the Canadian priest Fr. Normandin, who fought for the traditional Latin Mass in Canada during the years closely following Vatican II. His narration is invaluable as it stands, to this day, as an undismissable historical testimony. His eye-witness account of what life was like for a priest in the 1970’s attempting to remain faithful to Eternal Rome and the Mass of All Time is a reminder to us all what it was actually like in the time immediately following Vatican II.
What we enjoy today in the preservation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is due to the heroic efforts of those unwavering fighters who came before us. We owe them a great debt and should be inspired by what they did and what they were able to achieve. Fr. Normandin’s is interesting to all those who value the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass because he explains how we, the next generation of Catholics, almost lost it.
“To remain silent, or to withdraw into solitude would be to misunderstand their mission and, for want of courage, to shun their sacred duty. But in the event of grave canonical penalties being incurred for refusing to obey unlawful authority, such penalties, resulting from loyalty to the Traditional Roman Mass, would without question be null and void. It follows that priests are bound to ignore such sanctions, and continue with even greater courage the good fight for the faith.”
-Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, 1975 Preface, Priest out in the Cold
