“Although the Mass contains much instruction for the faithful, it has nevertheless not seemed expedient to the fathers that it be celebrated everywhere in the vernacular. The holy synod commands pastors and everyone who has the care of souls to explain frequently during the celebration of the Masses, either themselves or through others, some of the things that are read in the Mass, and among other things to expound some mystery of this most Holy Sacrifice, especially on Sundays and feastdays.”
— Council of Trent, XII:8 (1562)

Triumph Beyond Belief … Beyond Imagination
published 28 June 2017 by Jeff Ostrowski

NEVER DREAMED any music conference could be this powerful. The presentations have been utterly inspiring, the facilities are great, the conductors are superb, and the camaraderie is out of this world. May God be praised. In a world filled with negativity, complaining, and hand–wringing, FSSP.la is doing something positive and marvelous. May God be praised.

Listening to all these experts—Dr. Calabrese, Dr. Buchholz, Fr. Popplewell, Dr. Tappan, Chris Avendaño, and so forth—I remember why I got into music in the first place!

I am so inspired, and the week is only half over!

The days are EXTREMELY LONG … but we can’t stop, because it’s so amazing.
