On leaving the Vatican after his abdication: “I was deeply moved. The cordiality of the farewell, also the tears of my collaborators. [His voice breaks with emotion.] On the roof of the Casa Bonus Pastor there was written in huge letters «Dio gliene renda merito» [“May God reward you”]. (The Pope weeps) I was really deeply moved. In any case, while I hovered overhead and began to hear the bells of Rome tolling, I knew that I could be thankful and my state of mind on the most profound level was gratitude.”
— Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI (23 May 2016)

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).
