“Our Christian people regard with great joy everything that contributes to the splendor of the ceremonies. Jesus—who was poor in His private life—received ointment on His feet. See Thomas Aquinas (Prima Secundae, q. 102, art. 5, ad 10) and the holy Curé of Ars. The Church has always loved beautiful churches, and so forth. We must preserve our sacred patrimony and make sure sacred objects do not become secular possessions.”
— Abbot & Council Father denouncing “noble simplicity” during Vatican II

Catholic Line Art, Black and White • Installment #60
published 21 November 2014 by Cynthia Ostrowski

640 Bulletin T HAS BEEN my pleasure to post these lovely images, and I will continue doing so. But I hope no one thinks these downloads can replace holding the actual Jogues Missal in your hands. The entire book is a work of art, and its typesetting will astound you.

Today I made up my mind to post an image we did not use in our books. I searched through a bunch of images and finally decided upon Picture #60 [see below], which is the newest installment.

Then I searched Google for the official date of “Presentation of Mary.” Imagine my surprise to see NOVEMBER 21: today!  Coincidence?
