"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)

CATECHISM of GREGORIAN CHANT • 110+ pages • Author: The Very Rev. Gregory Hügle, O. S. B. : : Prior of Conception Abbey, Conception, Mo. • Publishing Information: 1928 (1944) : : No. 5945 : : J. Fischer & Bro . . . New York : : 119 West 40TH Street • Imprimatur by Cardinal Hayes. This 1944 version is the third printing of the book. He follows the “pure Vaticana” and completely avoids the issue of the mora vocis in complicated melodies. For him, it doesn’t even exist and is therefore not worth mentioning . . . •
