“Father Daniel’s special work during his stay at Ihonatiria was with the children. Their parents had not trained or disciplined them, they were utterly lawless and bad-tempered, but with infinite forbearance and kindliness the missionary became a favorite with them… Having taught them to sing, he proceeded to train the children to chant the Our Father, the Hail Mary, and the Commandments, which he had rendered into Huron rhymes. Formed into a choir, they added beauty and solemnity to the chapel services and attracted great numbers of their elders to Mass.”
— From the Life of Saint Antoine Daniel (d. 1648)

Catholic Line Art, Black and White • Installment #36
published 1 October 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 Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary.  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.
