Endorsed by Catholic Bishops worldwide who support the traditional Latin Mass

All of the bishops who have helped us throughout the years are listed in the Annuario Pontificio (Pontifical Annual) which is the official directory from the Holy See.  This book gives the complete lists of cardinals and bishops throughout the world.   Unless publicized elsewhere and so named below, we respect the confidentiality and privacy of the bishops who assist us and so refrain from listing their names.  All are Latin Rite bishops unless otherwise noted and all have administered the sacraments using the traditional Latin rites – not the new ones.
