We sternly urge adherence to the established norms by those who raise an uproar or a challenge in the name of a misunderstood creative freedom, and thus inflict so much harm on the Church with their rash innovations, so vulgar, so frivolous—and sometimes even lamentably profane. Otherwise the essence of dogma and obviously of ecclesiastical discipline will be weakened, in line with the famous axiom: "lex orandi, lex credendi." We therefore call for absolute loyalty so that the rule of faith may remain safe.
— Pope Paul VI (27 June 1977)

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.
