About this blogger:
"That good youth, recognizing the dangers in which he was involving himself in so perilous a journey, declared at his departure that the desire of serving God was leading him into a country where he surely expected to meet death." — Fr. Jerome Lalemant, speaking of St. Jean de Lalande

“We must say it plainly: the Roman rite as we knew it exists no more. It has gone. Some walls of the structure have fallen, others have been altered—we can look at it as a ruin or as the partial foundation of a new building. Think back, if you remember it, to the Latin sung High Mass with Gregorian chant. Compare it with the modern post-Vatican II Mass. It is not only the words, but also the tunes and even certain actions that are different. In fact it is a different liturgy of the Mass.”
— Fr. Joseph Gelineau (1978)

We had the honor of making the CMAA aware of the existence and importance of Dom Molitor’s book, and we even donated our copy, which was subsequently scanned by the CMAA for inclusion in the Sacred Music Magazine. We were glad to donate our book for this purpose. Here’s the CMAA scan (much higher quality than our scan):
