“Unfortunately, on the one hand a deadly error in judgment placed the official leadership of this committee into the hands of a man who—though generous and brave—was not very knowledgeable: Cardinal Lercaro. He was utterly incapable of resisting the maneuvers of the mealy-mouthed scoundrel that the Neapolitan Vincentian, Bugnini, a man as bereft of culture as he was of basic honesty, soon revealed himself to be.”
— Fr. Louis Bouyer, an important member of the Consilium

Catholic Line Art, Black and White • Installment #41
published 12 November 2013 by Cynthia Ostrowski

EFORE THE CAMPION MISSAL could be published, it was necessary to collect, scan, sort, clean, and carefully digitize more than 300 religious line art drawings. Credit for this goes to Kristen Ostrowski, who combed through hundreds of 19th century Missals, Antiphonals, Breviaries, and Graduals from a Benedictine Abbey, meticulously extracting pictures that were still intact.

Today’s installment was used for the feast of the Purification (2 February).  Click directly upon the image to download a high resolution version for your Church bulletin.

ENSHRINED AMONG THE THOUSAND PAGES of the St. Edmund Campion Missal & Hymnal for the Traditional Latin Mass (ccwatershed.org/Campion) are approximately ninety (90) of these exquisite “woodcuts.” In my blog entries over the next year or so, I will be releasing hundreds of these pictures for general use by Catholics everywhere.
