“Our Christian people regard with great joy everything that contributes to the splendor of the ceremonies. Jesus—who was poor in His private life—received ointment on His feet. See Thomas Aquinas (Prima Secundae, q. 102, art. 5, ad 10) and the holy Curé of Ars. The Church has always loved beautiful churches, and so forth. We must preserve our sacred patrimony and make sure sacred objects do not become secular possessions.”

Monks of a feather . . . .

Dr. Peter Wagner’s article on the Vatican Edition was not the only article that came to the defense of Abbot Pothier. Prior T. A. Burge, O.S.B., also took umbrage at the sharp words of Rev. Henry Bewerunge, criticizing Pope Saint Pius X’s Gregorian chant edition. Very Rev. Thomas Anselm Burge’s article is reproduced below.
