“Ever mindful, therefore, of the basic truth that our Colored Catholic brethren share with us the same spiritual life and destiny, the same membership in the Mystical Body of Christ, the same dependence upon the Word of God, the participation in the Sacraments, especially the Most Holy Eucharist, the same need of moral and social encouragement, let there be no further discrimination or segregation in the pews, at the Communion rail, at the confessional and in parish meetings, just as there will be no segregation in the kingdom of heaven.”
— Archbishop of Archbishop of New Orleans (1953)

1941 Mass (Chicago) mixed with 2017 Mass (FSSP)

HE SACRED MUSIC SYMPOSIUM is approaching! If you are interested, keep an eye on this blog, because we have exciting information to release—and it’s coming within the next two weeks.

I don’t believe I ever released this “comparison” video:

It’s pretty cool.

It places footage from a 1941 Solemn Mass (Chicago) alongside footage from a 2017 Solemn Mass (Los Angeles).
