The Extraordinary Life and Times of Michael Davies, Latin Mass Hero
– and a list of his works

‘I have been profoundly touched by the news of the death of Michael Davies. I had the good fortune to meet him several times and I found him as a man of deep faith and ready to embrace suffering. Ever since the Council he put all his energy into the service of the Faith and left us important publications especially about the Sacred Liturgy. Even though he suffered from the Church in many ways in his time, he always truly remained a man of the Church. He knew that the Lord founded His Church on the rock of St Peter and that the Faith can find its fullness and maturity only in union with the successor of St Peter. Therefore we can be confident that the Lord opened wide for him the gates of heaven. We commend his soul to the Lord’s mercy.’

    It was my privilege and pleasure to meet Michael Davies during his (all too brief) Sydney visit in 1996. Not only were his beautifully lucid, impeccably researched writings a crucial factor in my own religious education, but he was very obviously a great gentleman.
