Feast your eyes (and ears!) with this Catholic pearl.

Not only you find here a beautiful Tridentine Solemn Mass almost in its entirety, but you also have the commentary of no less than Fulton Sheen, both explaining details of the Mass and providing a short translation of the Latin text as it is sung. This is the Easter Mass of 1941 in the church of Our Lady Of Sorrows, Chicago.

The beauty and solemnity of this Easter Mass, the reverence, the accuracy of every detail (beautifully explained by Fulton Sheen) put to shame the very thought of getting rid of such breathtaking splendour.

Seriously, what the Conciliar Father were thinking – and in the years immediately after the Council, figuratively speaking, smoking – will always be beyond my simple understanding.

  1. Thanks for blogging this! What a GREAT way to learn the Mass!

  2. Considering that such splendour was a “common” thing all over in the world before VII. Why was that thrown away? It is a shame what we have lost with VII.

    • It was thrown away out of shher cowardice, desire to be loved, to be perceived as modern and hip and a’ la page. Out goes Latin, in goes the guitar.

      What a shame, what a waste, what a sacrilege.
