This Sunday at St. Thomas

Sung by the St. Ann Choir last Sunday at the noon Mass at St. Thomas Aquinas:

Waclaw z Szamotul, Ego sum pastor bonus
Jacobus Gallus, Stetit Jesus

Every time I read about some wretched parody of a Mass -- or just an ordinary Mass in an ordinary parish church, when both have been stripped of all reverence and beauty -- I get really grateful for what we have here in Palo Alto. For as long as it lasts.
