I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a direct war, a direct killing—direct murder by the mother herself. And we read in the Scripture, for God says very clearly: "Even if a mother could forget her child, I will not forget you: I have carved you in the palm of my hand."
— Mother Theresa (11 Dec 1979)

Photograph of Msgr. Francis P. Schmitt
published 26 July 2013 by Jeff Ostrowski

OR YEARS I SEARCHED IN VAIN for a nice photograph of Msgr. Francis P. Schmitt. Mr. William Shannon was kind enough to send one to us (below). It was taken sometime during the 1950s: that is, at a time when he’d taken over editing Cæcilia from his mentor, Dom Ermin Vitry, and was still running the famous Boys Town summer workshops with Flor Peeters, Roger Wagner, James Welch, Fr. Francis Brunner, and many others.
