"As the subject of the language of worship was discussed in the Council hall over the course of several days, I followed the process with great attention, as well as later the various wordings of the Liturgy Constitution until the final vote. I still remember very well how after several radical proposals a Sicilian bishop rose and implored the fathers to allow caution and reason to reign on this point, because otherwise there would be the danger that the entire Mass might be held in the language of the people — whereupon the entire hall burst into uproarious laughter."

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!


Bishop Conley is a great promoter of beauty.
