Today would have been the 89th birthday of Msgr. Richard Schuler, pastor and musician.
He labored in the dark years after the Council to keep sound liturgy alive, promote proper sacred music, foster vocations to the priesthood, and hold the line against both heresy and stupidity.
In this Year of the Priest, would you take a moment to pray for the repose of the soul of Msgr. Schuler?
Many people in places far and wide indirectly owe a lot to his work, though they might not have ever known him in life.
And… an interesting tidbit.
