“More and more as we grow older, we find that the people we see most of are recent acquaintances; not (perhaps) very congenial to us, but chance has thrown them in our way. Meanwhile, the people we used to know so well—for whom we once entertained such warm feelings—are now remembered by a card at Christmas (if we can succeed in finding the address). How good we are at making friends, when we are young; how bad at keeping them! How eagerly, as we grow older, do we treasure up the friendships that are left to us, like beasts that creep together for warmth!”
— Msgr. Ronald Knox (1888-1957)

“The best I have ever seen. Anywhere. In the world. Period.” —Mr. John Sonnen
published 8 January 2015 by Jeff Ostrowski

470 Latin Mass OR YEARS, JOHN SONNEN has run one of the best, most important, and most influential Catholic blogs: ORBIS CATHOLICUS. Sonnen is a former disciple of Msgr. Richard J. Schuler and currently lives with his wife in Rome.

He recently featured the Jogues Missal on his website:

Here’s an excerpt:

HE BEST I HAVE SEEN. Anywhere. In the world. Period. Pastors, acquire these for your parish in bulk. Be amazed. And enjoy. The vitality of the Classical Rite is as fresh as ever. It is a religious revolution. The eagerness of that revolution carries on the young and curious and inspires them. The celebrant in the photos graduated from the Pontifical Roman Major Seminary at the Lateran Archbasilica, and is a good friend and fine priest!

Incidentally, if you come across any rare images of Catholic prelates on the internet, there’s a good chance John Sonnen was the one who’s responsible. Even “major” Catholic websites use his work constantly.
