Pope Gelasius in his 9th Letter to the Bishops of Lucania condemned the evil practice which had been introduced of women serving the priest at the celebration of Mass. Since this abuse had spread to the Greeks, Innocent IV strictly forbade it in his letter to the Bishop of Tusculum: “Women should not dare to serve at the altar; they should be altogether refused this ministry.” We too have forbidden this practice in the same words in Our oft-repeated constitution “Etsi Pastoralis” (§6, #21)
— Pope Benedict XIV • Encyclical “Allatae Sunt” (26 July 1755)

"A Catholic Life" reviews the Campion Hymnal
published 10 December 2013 by Corpus Christi Watershed

951 Latin M A blog specializing in catechetical resources has published this favorable review. Here’s an excerpt:

ACH AND EVERY DAY countless books are sold in the world and new books are being published for the first time. With the advent of Lulu.com and other self-publishing platforms, there are thousands of books introduced into the world each year. For a Catholic trying to navigate the narrow road, he will find many books that are neither beautiful nor spiritually enriching. And once in a while he will find a book that is either very beautifully designed or one that is truly spiritually enriching and enduring. It is a gem to find a book that has both characteristics. I’m glad that I have found such a one in the St. Edmund Campion Missal.
