On Saturday and Sunday, September 29th & 30th, we were blessed with an animated public lecture and practical demonstration of principles by the Bishop Peter Elliott on the Liturgical Reforms Envisioned by Benedict XVI, at Saint Mary of Victories Church.
Credo members have been interested in “good liturgy” for many years; we have a number of enthusiasts of what is now called the Extraordinary Form of the Liturgy, and Board Member Fred Haehnel is the president of the local Una Voce chapter. Advisory Board member James Hitchcock is one of the founders of the Latin Liturgy Association, which promotes and fosters the use of Latin, and his wife Helen publishes the very fine Adormeus Bulletin, recommended by Bishop Elliott.
The complete text of the heavily-footnoted lecture is available by clicking here.

Spiral of Silence: A social phenomenon where, out of a desire to avoid reprisal or rejection, people go along with what they think is the popular opinion – even if they object to that opinion personally. Instead of voicing their objections, they remain silent. In cooperation with the Bishops’ ongoing campaign for religious liberty, the DVD “Breaking the Spiral of Silence” will be shown Monday, August 20th at 7 PM at St. Clare of Assisi followed by a Q & A session with Dr. Ed Hogan, director of Paul VI Institute in St. Louis.
