Author of Dominus Est, Bp Athanasius Schneider, to appear on EWTN Wednesday

Bishop Schneider of Kazakhstan standing in the sanctuary at Assumption Grotto, July 20th, 2008 following the 9:30am Mass. The bishop delivered the sermon at all Masses that weekend and went to Sts Cyril & Methodius to celebrate Mass the following Saturday. It was during his July visit that he went to EWTN where he appeared in a televised Mass, and recorded the program to be aired this Wednesday.

Bishop Athanasius Schneider, ORC of Kazakhstan will be featured on EWTN Live with Fr. Mitch Pacwa this coming Wednesday night, December 17th. If you don't have cable, watch it online if you have something better than dialup.

If you missed Bishop Schneider's visit to Assumption Grotto in July (when the taping for this episode took place) or are not local, do tune into this event. The bishop discusses his childhood and growing up behind the Iron Curtain. Reading Dominus Est is good. But, reading it after hearing him speak, helps the reader to understand how the bishop came to have such a great love and devotion for the Eucharist.

If you want to know what the book is about, I highly recommend reading the excerpt that appeared in the Vatican's newspaper: Historical-Liturgical Notes on the Rite of the Eucharist by Bishop Athanasius Schneider
