Song for the Holy Father's Visit to England

Apparently the prophet of doom Damian Thompson has hailed the 60s era folk-liturgies that have become the shame of Catholicism, will be celebrated during the Holy Father's visit.

They should sing this one, written by none other than Cardinal Archbishop Nicholas Wiseman, that goodly man who implemented the re-establishment of the Roman hierarchy in England, Scotland, and Wales in the 1850s.

  1. Thank you so much for posting this, Andrew. I had never heard this before and, now that I have, I agree with you that this would be the perfect hymn for the Holy Father's visit to England. Maybe if we ask for the help of the English martyrs, several of whom heard William Byrd's beautiful polyphonic compositions for Mass, those in charge of the music for the upcoming visit will change the program for the better. May God bless you and Our Lady protect you.
