Some people call you “traditionalists.” Sometimes you even call yourselves “traditional Catholics” or hyphenate yourselves in a similar way. Please do this no longer. You do not belong in a box on the shelf or in a museum of curiosities. You are not traditionalists: you are Catholics of the Roman rite—as am I, and as is the Holy Father. You are not second-class or somehow peculiar members of the Catholic Church because of your life of worship and your spiritual practices, which were those of innumerable saints.
— Robert Cardinal Sarah (14 Sept 2017)

Sonnen: “I’ve never seen such a fine work of art.”
published 9 November 2016 by Corpus Christi Watershed

HEN YOU ARE cruising the Roman Catholic blogosphere, if you come across an ancient chasuble, colorful Cappa Magna, rare photo of Pope St. John Paul II, vibrant ferraiolo, or impromptu gathering of clerics, odds are it originally came from the website of Mr. John Paul Sonnen, who runs a travel company with his wife.

We were so pleased when a reader shared a link where Mr. Sonnen says:

“Photo taken in Minneapolis, Minnesota. I strongly encourage every pastor of English-language parish communities across the world to purchase this missal and hymnal for their pews. I have never seen such a fine work of art. This is by far the best pew missal yet available in any language at any time.”
