The Catholic Sanctuary
And the Second Vatican Council
St. Benedict Press LLC
In this very important little pocket booklet, Michael Davies sets forth the amazing thesis that Vatican II and the Post Vatican II legislation did not mandate any changes in the Catholic sanctuary: that is, they did not mandate moving the Tabernacle from the central point in the altar, nor placing a chair in the middle of the sanctuary - or even Mass facing the people. Filled with quotes from the relevant passages of the actual Church documents, this valuable little handbook is a wonderful aid for those trying to education, discuss and fight a modernist update of the sanctuary in a parish Church. Michael Davies also shows the striking similarity between the Protestant & 34;Reformers& 34; destruction of altars in the 16th century and todays destruction of altars and sanctuaries by modernist reformers. This booklet is a best seller and an eye opener to un sanctioned changes in the structure of the sanctuary.
Michael Davies, who lived from 1936-2004, was a Catholic writer who authored various works following the Second Vatican Council, in addition to unifying Una Voce America, a conservative group. Previously an Anglican, he converted to the Catholic Church in the 1950s, and went on to compose such works as The Liturgical Revolution, The Order of Melchisedech, Partisans of Error, For Altar and Throne, and The Wisdom of Adrian Fortescue. Upon Davies??? death in 2004, Pope Benedict XVI called him a man of deep faith who was ready to embrace suffering. His Holiness went on to say, ???… We can be confident that the Lord opened wide for him the gates of Heaven. We commend his soul to the Lord???s mercy.???
