Certainly, the Second Vatican Council wished to promote greater active participation [and] fine initiatives were taken along these lines. However we cannot close our eyes to the disaster, the devastation and the schism that the modern promoters of a living liturgy caused by remodeling the Church’s liturgy according to their ideas. They forgot that the liturgical act is not just a PRAYER, but also and above all a MYSTERY in which something is accomplished for us that we cannot fully understand but that we must accept and receive in faith, love, obedience and adoring silence.

FSSP.la Choir Communiqué • 8 February 2015

Number 1

Practice this week will take place on Wednesday, 11 February 2015, at 7:00pm. The location will be at my home. We tried to avoid having rehearsal on Wednesday—since Meaghan has an organ concert at that time—but it was impossible to avoid (based on a serious conversation we had on Saturday with the choir).


Number 2

The Engagé members who attended practice yesterday, I will see you tonight at 6:30pm. If you could please bring enough Grey Hymnals into the choir loft for everybody, that would be a lovely gesture on your part and much appreciated. If not, no worries.

The Engagé members who could not attend yesterday, I hope to see you Wednesday!!!
