“In 1854 John Mason Neale co-founded an order of women dedicated to nursing the sick. Many Anglicans in his day, however, were very suspicious of anything suggestive of Roman Catholicism. Only nine years earlier, John Henry Newman had encouraged Catholic practices in Anglican churches and had ended up becoming a Roman Catholic. This encouraged the suspicion that anyone such as Neale was an agent of the Vatican, assigned to destroy Anglicanism by subverting it from within. Once, Neale was attacked and mauled at a funeral of one of the Sisters. From time to time unruly crowds threatened to stone him or to burn his house.”

Solemn Mass • 1941 vs. 2017
published 16 July 2017 by Jeff Ostrowski

Somebody has put together a clever video mixing Fr. Favole’s First Solemn Mass with a 1941 Mass in Chicago:


The music you hear was provided by the 2017 Sacred Music Symposium. It was recorded “live” on a pocket recorder by someone sitting towards the front of Church.

It’s awesome that modern technology is allowing Catholics to discover their ancient traditions. So many of us who grew up in the 1980s and 1990s were robbed of our heritage.
