“At the hour for the Divine Office, | as soon as the signal is heard, | let them abandon whatever they may have in hand | and hasten with the greatest speed, | yet with seriousness, so that there is no excuse for levity. | Let nothing be preferred to the sacred liturgy.”
— Rule of St. Benedict (Chapter 43)

4001 Francisco Guerrero (composer) died 1599AD

Most CCW donations are spent on mundane items like website repairs, but whenever possible we try to promote artists. For example, there wasn’t a decent picture of Guerrero (a devout Catholic who died in 1599AD) so we commissioned the jaw-dropping painting you see above. It’s based on Pacheco’s version, created the year Guerrero died.

Corpus Christi Watershed is a 100% volunteer organization; none of us is paid.

Please consider donating $5.00 per month.
