“In all this mediaeval religious poetry there is much that we could not use now. Many of the hymns are quite bad, many are frigid compositions containing futile tricks, puns, misinterpreted quotations of Scripture, and twisted concepts, whose only point is their twist. But there is an amazing amount of beautiful poetry that we could still use. If we are to have vernacular hymns at all, why do we not have translations of the old ones?”
— Fr. Adrian Fortescue (d. 1923)

published 24 June 2015 by Jeff Ostrowski

Bishop Gracida spoke to Mother Angelica for 60 minutes about the Church teaching on Divorce & Remarriage. You can obtain a copy of this DVD from EWTN.

Deep down, most of us feel that we’re eminently articulate. However, when we see ourselves on camera we are quickly cured of this notion! Bishop Gracida comes across very well on that video. Maybe somewhere along the line during his interesting life he was given some television tips!
