“I should not like to be too harsh on this commission’s labors. It numbered a certain number of genuine scholars and more than one experienced and judicious pastor. Under different circumstances, they might have accomplished excellent work. Unfortunately, on the one hand, a deadly error in judgment placed the official leadership of this committee in the hands of a man who—though generous and brave—was not very knowledgeable: Cardinal Larcaro. He was utterly incapable of resisting the maneuvers of the mealy-mouthed scoundrel that the Neapolitan Vincentian, Annibale, a man as bereft of culture as he was of basic honesty, soon revealed himself to be.”
— Fr. Bouyer, a liturgical expert appointed by Pope Paul VI

FSSP.la Choir Communiqué • 18 November 2014
published 18 November 2014 by Jeff Ostrowski

MUST APOLOGIZE that I’ve failed to keep in touch for the last week. I was transporting my wife and two children from Texas to California, and this endeavor was more strenuous than I had assumed. Moreover, I’ve been without internet access for more than a week. Please forgive me.

We will have choir practice 7:00PM Wednesday, 19 November 2014.

Once again, it will be held at San Felipe Chapel (738 N Geraghty Ave, Los Angeles 90063).

Once again, Fr. Fryar will provide food afterward.

RANDOM FACTS:

a) We will prepare for the FSSP Mass at St. Victor’s on the 1st Sunday of Advent (30 November 2014 at 7:00pm).

b) St. Victor’s will not be our final destination as a Parish. The FSSP is in the process of securing their own parish.

c) However, even though St. Victor’s is not our final destination, Fr. Fryar has made it clear it’s important we make the liturgical music as nice as we can.
