"Since such is the nature of man that he cannot easily without external means be raised to meditation on divine things, on that account holy Mother Church has instituted certain rites, namely that certain things be pronounced in a subdued tone (canon and words of consecration) and others in a louder tone; she has likewise made use of ceremonies such as mystical blessings, lights, incense, vestments, and many other things of this kind in accordance with apostolic teaching and tradition, whereby both the majesty of so great a sacrifice might be commended, and the minds of the faithful excited by these visible signs of religion and piety to the contemplation of the most sublime matters which are hidden in this sacrifice."
— Council of Trent (Session XXII)

Bishop Conley Sings "Salve Regina" With A Whole Pack Of Bishops
published 3 July 2014 by Jeff Ostrowski

OW OFTEN do you see a whole pack of bishops sitting around singing Gregorian chant? A reader sent the following footage which shows Bishop Conley leading his fellow bishops in the Salve Regina. By the way, I love how he blesses the family afterward, too: so inspiring! And we certainly need inspiration in this sad world of ours!


I know, I know … it’s the 16th century Salve Regina instead of the authentic Medieval one. But it’s the version everybody knows!

P.S.

Bishop Conley is a great promoter of beauty.
