“Since the ability of Francisco Guerrero is now abundantly known to all […] he shall henceforth act as master of the boys so long as: ( 1) he must teach them to read, write, and to sing the responsories, versicles, antiphons, lessons, and kalends, and other parts of divine service; (2) he shall teach them plainchant, harmony, and counterpoint, his instruction in counterpoint to include both the art of adding a melody to a plainsong and to an already existing piece of polyphonic music; (3) he shall always clothe them decently and properly, see that they wear good shoes, and ensure that their beds are kept perfectly clean; (4) he shall feed them the same food that he himself eats and never take money from them for anything having to do with their services in church or their musical instruction…” [cont’d]

UPDATE * Latin Mass Will Remain In Hollywood
published 29 December 2014 by Jeff Ostrowski

507 Saint Victor Hollywood XCITING NEWS from Hollywood! The Traditional Latin Mass will be offered at Saint Victor indefinitely every Sunday at 7:00pm.

Please help spread the word, and know that you are welcome at this Mass:

Mass in the Extraordinary Form
7:00pm Each Sunday
Saint Victor Church
8634 Holloway Drive

According to tradition, Pope Saint Victor changed the Mass from Greek to Latin, and was called by Saint Jerome “the first Latin writer in the Church.” The mission of the FSSP—personally given to them by Pope Saint John Paul II—is to make the Latin Mass available to Catholics desiring it.
