Bishop Schneider visits Slovenia

His Excellency, Bishop Athanasius Schneider, accepted an invitation from Juventutem Slovenia and offered the first pontifical High Mass in that country since the 1960s.

Juventutem Slovenia recently translated Bishop Schneider's book on receiving communion on the tongue, Corpus Christi. According to the blog Ad Dominum, the bishop delivered a lecture on that subject on 18 November, and celebrated pontifical Low and High Masses there last month. Some of the faithful traveled from as far as Croatia and Italy for the lecture and Masses, which were well-attended.  His Excellency was escorted by members of Juventutem Slovenia to the National Shrine of the Virgin Mary at Brezje, followed by a visit to the city of Bled and the Cathedral of Saint Nicholas in Ljubjana.
