EADERS OF THIS BLOG have probably noticed that we eschew posting videos. The reasons behind our eschewal are many and weighty. However, today we make an exception for this sermon by Christopher Smith, a very wise priest:
Two brief points:
1.) I like how Fr. Smith points out that Dom Guéranger bought (i.e. purchased) the monastery of Solesmes. This is something I often mention, but people think I’m making it up!
2. I have a slight quibble with the name “Audio Sancto” and its sister company “Audio Sancto” … what do those mean? I asked two priests, both of whom have taught Latin for more 30 years. They agree that these terms are incorrect and/or unidiomatic. Can anyone explain to me what they’re trying to say? I’m not sure why it bothers me so much to hear those phrases.
