“Our Christian people regard with great joy everything that contributes to the splendor of the ceremonies. Jesus—who was poor in His private life—received ointment on His feet. See Thomas Aquinas (Prima Secundae, q. 102, art. 5, ad 10) and the holy Curé of Ars. The Church has always loved beautiful churches, and so forth. We must preserve our sacred patrimony and make sure sacred objects do not become secular possessions.”

Sacra Liturgia USA 2015 — New York City
published 31 May 2015 by Fr. David Friel

omorrow begins Sacra Liturgia USA 2015, an international conference on liturgical formation in light of the New Evangelization. I will be present at the event and will try to offer a few real-time reports on the experience here on Views from the Choir Loft.

Last month, I posted an brief mention of some of the speakers we will hear this week. I also encourage you to check out the full schedule, posted HERE.

On the conference website, you will find a detailed introduction to each of the speakers. The schedule further includes the titles of the talks to be given.

With gratitude to the organizers of this conference, I pray that its proceedings will be a blessing to the Church in America and beyond.
