  • [Cath Cauc] Old Mass Shouldn't Be Called “Extraordinary” But the “More Ancient And Constant Form”

    Old Mass Shouldn't Be Called “Extraordinary” But the “More Ancient And Constant Form” Bishop Athanasius Schneider said in a Corpus Christi homily in Winnipeg, Canada, that the Old Latin Mass should not be called “extraordinary” but the “more ancient and constant form” of Mass. The reason: The traditional form of Mass has been celebrated in its details during more than a thousand years. According to, Schneider pointed out that almost all saints of the second millennium were “drawing their spiritual strength from this immemorial liturgy”.

    These days, Bishop Schneider is again very active. Next to issuing, together with some other prelates from Kazakhstan, a statement on the relevance of Humanae Vitae, he gave Onepeterfive an interview; then he gave an important talk at the Rome Life Forum. Additionally, a new interview has just been published in the Homiletic & Pastoral Review which he had given already in February of 2018. Bishop Schneider responds in this new interview to the then-new initiative of the German bishops with regard to Holy Communion for some Protestant spouses of Catholics. He also comments on the ongoing loss of reverence...

    It is with much gratitude that we present today to our readers a lengthy, original interview with Bishop Athanasius Schneider of the Archdiocese of Saint Mary in Astana, Kazakhstan. He was so considerate in his answers to the following questions, which we sent to him prior to the recent 3 May meeting of German bishops with the Vatican concerning the current conflict about Communion for Protestant spouses, as well as prior to the scandalous opening of the “Heavenly Bodies” exhibition in New York. It was our intention to put questions to him that would give him an occasion to issue...
  • Rob Schneider thinks 'Saturday Night Live' is ruining the joke

    “Saturday Night Live,” you can do it — better. Comedian Rob Schneider burst out on the scene on "Saturday Night Live" in the 1990s, but nearly three decades later, he thinks the hit NBC comedy series is bursting the punchline when it comes to the Trump White House. The 54-year-old San Francisco native, who was part of the show's now-legendary cast that included Dana Carvey, Mike Myers, Chris Farley, Chris Rock, David Spade and Adam Sandler, says the show today is no different in some ways — yet when it comes to politics, they are too obviously "showing their hand"...
  • [Catholic Caucus] Bishop Schneider: ‘Discernment’ now means to ‘allow to sin’

    The controversy surrounding Pope Francis’ teaching on marriage and family as found in his exhortation Amoris Laetitia can be reduced to allowing Catholics “to sin,” said Bishop Athanasius Schneider in an exclusive interview with LifeSiteNews.  The auxiliary bishop of Astana Kazakhstan said that phrases such as “discernment,” “pastoral accompaniment,” and “change of paradigm,” while sounding “beautiful” amount to a concession to sin. He said it was similar to how Moses allowed the Israelites to sin by allowing divorce because of their “hardness of heart.”  “The suggestion is that now, after 2000 years, the Church has discovered the subjective aspect of...

    In an exclusive interview two weeks after issuing a profession of immutable truths about sacramental marriage, Bishop Athanasius Schneider is inviting his brother bishops around the world to join in raising a common voice in defense of the sanctity and the indissolubility of marriage, in the midst of a “neo-pagan society” where divorce has become “a plague.” In conversation with LifeSiteNews on Jan. 15, 2018, the auxiliary bishop of Astana Kazakhstan said: “God decides the time, and the time will come when the Pope and the episcopacy again will proclaim, with all clarity, unambiguity and beauty, the sanctity of marriage, and of...

  • [Catholic Caucus] How Bishop Athanasius Schneider Became a Leading Voice for Catholic Truth

    Bishop Athanasius Schneider was a “model child” who developed a deep love and reverence for the Eucharist, thanks to deeply devout parents and having been starved of the Blessed Sacrament under Soviet communist rule. This is the picture obtained from family and friends of the auxiliary bishop of Astana in Kazakhstan who is becoming one of the leading voices of fidelity, continuity and tradition in the Church today. Most recently, Bishop Schneider took the lead in issuing a “Profession of Immutable Truths About Sacramental Marriage” in a bid to resolve the confusion over interpretations of Pope Francis’ 2016 post-synodal apostolic...

    His Excellency, Bishop Athanasius Schneider, gave an interview on French TV about Pope Francis and the Amoris laetitia controversy that is tearing apart of the unity of the Church in many spheres.  The video is available.  There are English subtitles. He hits hard those ecclesiastics who want a “Gospel without the sixth commandment”.“They use tactics and evil means, such as “ruses, deceptions, masterful rhetoric and dialectics, and even the tactic of intimidation and moral violence in order to attain their goal of admitting so-called “remarried” divorces to Holy Communion” without the latter fulfilling the condition of living in perfect continence…”.“It...

Schneider has produced and written the shows that have given us breakout stars like Arianna Grande, Amanda Bynes and Victoria Justice. Schneider has also been the subject of some very disturbing and consistent rumors for years. One need only search his name on the internet to find pretty damning rumors about him going back years. There are stories of his foot fetishes and how he acts them out on young extras alone in his...

    The validity of the commandments and of the entire moral law is at stake in the Church according to Bishop Athanasius Schneider. Talking to he asserted that "the Pope is himself tolerating a wide dissemination of obvious errors of faith and of grave abuses of the sacraments (like the admittance of unrepentant adulterers to the sacraments)". Schneider compares this to a ship in a stormy sea, in which the captain ignores the obvious dangers, while the majority of his officers wrap themselves in silence, saying: "All is just fine on the sinking ship”. The few officers, who raise their...

    Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation Amoris Laetitia “seems to” go in the direction of a pastoral “discernment” that “allows the adulterers to continue in adultery,” says Bishop Athanasius Schneider. The consequences for many could be eternal damnation, Schneider warned. “We cannot play with our eternity. As the Proverb said, ‘We cannot play with fire.’” And the pope bears “grave responsibility” for this situation, the auxiliary bishop of Astana, Kazakhstan, said during a recent Tradition, Faith and Property conference in Poland. The bishop was responding to the question of how priests should apply the principle of “discernment” laid out in Amoris Laetitia...

    This address was delivered by His Excellency Bishop Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary bishop of Astana in Kazakhstan, on 19 May 2017 at the fourth annual Rome Life Forum, which is organised by Voice of the Family. The family has been created immediately by God, so the Magisterium of the Church teaches us (cf. Pius XI., Encyclical Divini illius magistri, 12). Pope Leo XIII says in his magisterial encyclical on marriage and family: “Marriage has God for its Author, and was from the very beginning a kind of foreshadowing of the Incarnation of His Son; and therefore there abides in it something holy...

    “The movement to restore the traditional Mass is the work of the Holy Spirit, and is unstoppable” Our partners at Adelante La Fe (Rorate in Spanish) today published an exclusive interview with His Excellency Bishop Athanasius Schneider. The answers he gives are very blunt and bold -- even for the great bishop. It's pretty clear even by just skimming his answers that he believes the time has come for the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX). HEADLINES “There are many places where priests act more like Protestant ministers than Catholic priests” “There are families that must travel more than 100...

    Bishop Athanasius Schneider, the internationally renowned apologist of the fullness of the Catholic faith, admits that we are already witnessing a bizarre schism among some clergy who profess union with the pope but who have broken their ties with Christ, the Truth, and with Christ, the true Head of the Church. Bishop Schneider made these comments in his recent interview with the French internet TV station TV Libertes. Having responded to the question what might happen if the dubia presented by the four cardinals remains unanswered, Bishop Schneider was asked if the problem of the pope's silence continues isn't there...

    Even the sole good reason for electing Trump — blocking Clinton's certain appointment of liberal Supreme Court justices — falls apart under scrutiny. Does anyone actually believe Trump is steeped in conservative judicial philosophy enough to appoint a justice willing to practice judicial humility? Asking Trump to properly identify a conservative jurist is like asking your dentist to perform your next prostate exam. And in that case, you at least get a new toothbrush out of the deal. (The best strategy seems to preserve Anthony Kennedy and Clarence Thomas in Han Solo-style carbonite and hold our breath until 2020.)
