They were not ashamed to lay their hands on Sedulius, on Prudentius, on St. Ambrose himself. Only in one or two cases does some sense of shame seem to have stopped their nefarious work. They left “Ave maris stella,” “Jam lucis orto sidere,” and St. Thomas Aquinas’s hymns alone (they would have made pretty work of “Sacris solemniis”). In 1629 their mangled remnants were published.

N THIS WONDERFUL talk, Dr. Scott Hahn admits to sometimes being bored at Mass and explains why. He also talks about how his daughter “doesn’t want to go to Heaven.”

You owe it to yourself to watch the entire presentation (an hour), but if you don’t have time, make sure to at least watch the following brief excerpt:

Incidentally, at the very beginning of the talk, Dr. Hahn praises Adam Bartlett, who had just given a beautiful talk on Sacred music.
