"Although the Mass contains much instruction for the faithful, it has nevertheless not seemed expedient to the fathers that it be celebrated everywhere in the vernacular. The holy synod commands pastors and everyone who has the care of souls to explain frequently during the celebration of the Masses, either themselves or through others, some of the things that are read in the Mass, and among other things to expound some mystery of this most Holy Sacrifice, especially on Sundays and feastdays."
— Council of Trent, XII:8 (1562)

Have you heard of St Clelia?
published 5 December 2015 by Veronica Brandt

St Clelia Barbieri HE TRIALS OF THIS WORLD are hardly to be compared with the joys to come – including the joy of singing with the Saints!

Reading Andrew’s post on St John Paul II’s singing voice reminded me of a recent saint whose voice joins in with her sisters in singing the Divine Office around the world. You can read about St Clelia Barbieri here with a focus on the miraculous.

There is also a fantastic sermon on St Clelia and appreciating the liturgy accompanied by helpful photos below. You might recognise the voice from Audio Sancto.
