“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

Remarkable! • Amiens Cathedral During World War
published 11 August 2015 by Jeff Ostrowski

SOME WEBSITES CLAIM this image is from World War I, while others say it’s from World War II. I’m not sure, but it seems to be the interior of Amiens Cathedral with sandbag reinforcements against shell damage circa 1918:

May God preserve us from the ravages of war. May He grant us the grace to serve Him faithfully until death.
