Certainly, the Second Vatican Council wished to promote greater active participation [and] fine initiatives were taken along these lines. However we cannot close our eyes to the disaster, the devastation and the schism that the modern promoters of a living liturgy caused by remodeling the Church’s liturgy according to their ideas. They forgot that the liturgical act is not just a PRAYER, but also and above all a MYSTERY in which something is accomplished for us that we cannot fully understand but that we must accept and receive in faith, love, obedience and adoring silence.

Several people have emailed, requesting this:

    * *  High Resolution PDF Francisco Guerrero (d. 1599)

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.
