Society That Thinks Pope Pius XII Rules

Wednesday, September 27, 2006

"Nothing could better obstruct the confrontation of man with God than the notion that we 'go unto the altar of God' as we would go to a pleasant, relaxing social gathering. This is why the Latin mass with Gregorian chant, which raises us up to a sacred atmosphere, is vastly superior to a vernacular mass with popular songs, which leaves us in a profane, merely natural atmosphere."
-Dietrich von Hildebrand

"Dietrich von Hildebrand is the 20th century Doctor of the Church."
-Pope Pius XII
