Many declare that Vatican Council II brought about a true springtime in the Church. Nevertheless, a growing number of Church leaders see this “springtime” as a rejection, a renunciation of her centuries-old heritage, or even as a radical questioning of her past and Tradition. Political Europe is rebuked for abandoning or denying its Christian roots; but the first to have abandoned her Christian roots and past is indisputably the post-conciliar Catholic Church.

Catholic Line Art, Black and White • Installment #53
published 3 June 2014 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 section with Proper Communicantes.   Click directly upon the image to download a high resolution version for your Church bulletin. Or, you can view the complete collection here.

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.
