About this blogger:
"Father Isaac Jogues was truly a martyr before God, rendering witness to Heaven and earth that he valued the Faith and the propagation of the gospel more highly than his own life, and losing it in the dangers into which, with full consciousness, he cast himself for Jesus Christ…" — Fr. Jerome Lalemant (writing in 1647)

"I still haven’t made up my mind whether I shall publish it all. Some people are so humorless, so uncharitable, and so absurdly wrong-headed, that one would probably do far better to relax and enjoy life than worry oneself to death trying to instruct or entertain a public which will only despise one’s efforts, or at least feel no gratitude for them. Most readers know nothing about canon law — many regard it with contempt and find everything heavy going that isn’t completely lowbrow. Some are so grimly serious that they disapprove of all humor. Others come to different conclusions every time they stand up or sit down. They seize upon your publications, as a wrestler seizes upon his opponent’s hair, and use them to drag you down, while they themselves remain quite invulnerable, because their barren pates are completely bald, so there’s nothing for you to get hold of."
— St. Thomas More to Peter Gilles, 1516
Sacred Music of Nicholas Wilton & Paintings of Fra Angelica (Lovely Video)
published 12 March 2014 by Corpus Christi Watershed

E HAVE RECEIVED notice of the following beautiful video by Nicholas Wilton (see below) and a personal message from the composer:

“My intention in writing sacred choral music is firstly for the adoration of God and the veneration and glorification of Our Blessed Lady. Secondly it is to help raise minds and hearts to God in the sacred Catholic liturgy. In these troubled times where very few Catholics have sacraments my hope is that my sacred choral music might help Catholics against the assaults of the devil. If my little sub-creations can help even one soul, I should be happy.”
