Penance Time

Holy Lent is the time, par excellence, dedicated to penance, in which the Holy Church has a whole source of prayers in order to beg God for forgiveness for past sins and amendment for the Christian life that will follow.

Sagração Episcopal de D. Marcel Lefebvre

D. Marcel Lefebvre and his foundation

For every time of crisis, God raises up valiant defenders for his Church. Faced with the Second Vatican Council, licitly called World War III by so many thinkers, the courage of some bishops to denounce errors and keep intact the Sacred Deposit of Faith must be considered essential so that the Mass of Always can have its continuity.

One of these valiant bishops was Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre.
