It's official. The Catholic Knight is retired.  I'm hanging up the helmet and passing the torch. There will be no more articles, no more commentaries, no more calls to action. THIS BLOG IS CLOSED. I've spent a very long time thinking about this, I believe the time has come, and is a bit overdue.  I want to thank my readers for everything, but most especially for your encouragement and your willingness to go out there and fight the good fight. So, that being the case, I've spend the last several weeks looking for bloggers who are fairly active, and best represent something akin to the way I think and what I believe.  I recommend the following blogs for my readers to bookmark and check on regularly. Pick one as your favourite, or pick them all. They are all great..... In His Majesty's Service, THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT

Papal Mass in New York a Liturgical Success


THE CATHOLIC KNIGHT: After the liturgical debacle at Nationals Stadium in Washington DC, Pope Benedict XVI showed Americans how to do it right at St. Patrick's Church in New York. Solemnity was in the atmosphere. The people were reverent. The music was appropriate. The language of the Church (Latin) was used intermittently.  Gregorian chant mingled with the echo of organ pipes.  Some of the women were even veiled.  For a moment, heaven touched earth.  This is what a modern Catholic mass is supposed to look like. We can only hope that our clergy, and choir directors, from around the country were taking some notes. You can watch the full video HERE.
