“Today the Church has made a big mistake, turning the clock back 500 years with guitars and popular songs. I don't like it at all. Gregorian Chant is a vital and important tradition of the Church and to waste this—by having guys mix religious words with profane, Western songs—is hugely grave, hugely grave.”
— Maestro Ennio Morricone (10 Sept 2009)

Major Media Outlet Re: “Ad Orientem”

208 Robert Cardinal Sarah Y FRIEND emailed me a URL link to an article by Ms. Claire Chretien. Published by a major media outlet, the article deals with recent statements by Robert Cardinal Sarah, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, with regard to “ad orientem” in the Ordinary Form.

Specifically, Ms. Chretien cites several Watershed articles, including this one (which really caught fire online, being “cut & pasted” to many Catholic blogs). What I appreciate is that she properly credits our website.

Here’s an excerpt:
