The pages of Abbé Dulac are of extraordinary relevance today. They demonstrate how the roots of the evils which are afflicting the Church reach back at least to the 1960s, the years of the Council and the post-Council... The ‘hermeneutic of continuity’ in style today does not have the clarity and intellectual vigour of the arguments made by defenders of Tradition like Abbé Dulac, whose writings merit to be read and meditated on, not only in order to honour their memory but also to nourish today’s Catholic resistance, which is the daughter of that of fifty years ago, and which is fighting against the same enemy.
--Professor Roberto di Mattei.
Father Dulac devotes himself heart and soul to coming to the aid of the beauty, dignity and sanctity of worship in the face of the liturgical and doctrinal upheaval which is shaking the Church.

One by one, he demolishes the supposed arguments given in favour of this upheaval – all of them, in every domain: historical, theological, liturgical, canonical and pastoral. He leaves no stone unturned, focusing particularly on demonstrating how the Mass codified by Pope Saint Pius V had not been abrogated by Pope Paul VI, and could not have been. This conclusion was finally acknowledged in 2007 by the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum, a full thirty-six years after he had gone to his eternal reward.

While Father Dulac confronts the liturgical revolution with all the erudition he can muster, it does not take the reader long to realise that behind this erudition there lies the heart of a priest, a priest who loves Christ’s Church, Her Laws, Her Sacraments and, above all, Her Mass. It is the heart of a true shepherd who loves the sheep and cannot bear to see them deprived of the sustenance won for them by the Good Shepherd and applied to their souls in the Church’s unadulterated Traditional Liturgy.
