“Philip the presbyter and legate of the Apostolic See said: There is no doubt, and in fact it has been known in all ages, that the holy and most blessed Peter, prince and head of the apostles, pillar of the faith, and foundation of the Catholic Church, received the keys of the kingdom from our Lord Jesus Christ, the Savior and Redeemer of the human race, and that to him was given the power of loosing and binding sins: who down even to today and forever both lives and judges in his successors. The holy and most blessed pope Celestine, according to due order, is his successor and holds his place, and us he sent to supply his place in this holy synod.”
— Council of Ephesus (A.D. 431)

CMAA President Has His Own "STAR" In Hollywood
published 2 May 2013 by Jeff Ostrowski

ART OF MY JOB as Watershed President consists of speaking with generous Catholics who value our work and feel called by our Lord to offer assistance. A person who lives in Los Angeles recently purchased the Campion Missal & Hymnal and wanted to discuss further possibilities of helping promote the Latin Mass. In this case, we were already thinking of heading to California to visit family, so everything worked out perfectly. Is this trip business or pleasure? The correct answer is “yes.”

Anyway, did you know a former President of the CMAA has a “Star” in Hollywood? That’s correct, and you can see his name in the picture at the upper right. That’s my wife, Cynthia, and our daughter, Carmen.

Roger Wagner was, quite simply, a “legend.” One of my dear friends knew him very well, and so I’ve heard a ton of interesting stories about him. At this time, I won’t relate all these anecdotes: they can wait. Right now, I just wish to point out that Roger was a great a musician who understood large musical forms. This is a rare gift.
