Father Louis J. Campbell
    Fr. Louis Campbell    Father Louis J. Campbell was born in Brooklyn, New York, on November 1, 1932. To avoid the effects of the Great Depression, his parents took him back in 1934 to Cape Breton Island in their native Nova Scotia, where he grew up. He graduated from St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, in 1956, and the same year joined the Order of St. Augustine. After seminary studies at St. Francis Seminary in South Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and St. Paul's University in Ottawa, Ontario, he was ordained to the priesthood on September 3, 1961.

        During his forty years with the Augustinians in Canada, Father Campbell served a term as Novice Master, and was prior of monasteries in Delta, British Columbia, Racine, Wisconsin, and King City, Ontario. After several years as pastor of Sacred Heart Parish in King City, he was given leave by the Augustinians to join the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, where he resumed the celebration of the Traditional Latin Mass. With the Fraternity he was pastor for three years at St. Michael's Parish in Scranton, PA, and for two years at St. Clement's in Ottawa, Ontario, before accepting an invitation from a group of Traditional Catholics in the Houston area to be chaplain at St. Jude's Shrine in Stafford, Texas, his present location.

        Father Campbell's sermons are being sent by e-mail to individuals and groups of Traditional Catholics all over the world, and some of them have been published in a book entitled The Little Book of Sermons for the Last Times.

        The title for his sermons on The DAILY CATHOLIC are appropriately called "Qui legit, intelligat" - "He who reads, let him understand" - which are the words Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ conveyed in no uncertain terms to His disciples, recorded in Matthew 24: 15, in speaking of the abomination of desolation foretold by Daniel the prophet and these times which, from all signs and events, we are in or very close to the very times He refers to. This Gospel is also the last Gospel of the liturgical year, being read every 24th Sunday After Pentecost just prior to the First Sunday of Advent.
