Father Albert Drexel
The book about Fr. Albert Drexel , Faith is Greater than Obedience, is a collection of words of Our Lord spoken to him a couple of years before he died on March 9, 1977. These locutions have every mark of credibility, for Fr. Drexel was an experienced priest, a professor certainly not one to give into flights of imagination, nor one easily deceived by the devil. Fr. Drexel said only the Latin Tridentine Mass and never said the Novus Ordo (New Mass). The book is available at JMJ Books and Religious Goods, 1-608-565-2516, and their website. You can also read some of the book here.
Here are a couple of quotes taken from the book that I found to be very interesting. He was told by Our Lord several times that He approved of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre and on page 78, words of the Savior in the early morning of December 3, 1976, Our Lord said, "But priests, like My worthy servant Marcel, are persecuted, condemned, and outlawed because they see the sacramental sacrifice as the truest and holiest and celebrate the mystery of My body and blood with holy reverence."
Our Lord said, "The great disaster in My one and true Church is the desecration of the Blessed Sacrament, because it has gained ground in the whole world since the council of the popes John and Paul, and it provokes the anger of God."
Shortly before his death, Fr. Drexel had said: "My greatest grief
in the hour of death is the dilapidation of faith in the Roman Catholic Church. My last desire is the reconciliation of Rome with Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre."
