Yesterday's (Saturday) post touched upon the work of American Benedictines dating back to the 1920's and the founding of the first U.S. publication on worship, Orate Fratres, in 1926. Here is a link to a 2012 Notre Dame essay on the impact of the early liturgical reform movement, "Re-reading Orate Fratres: The American Liturgical Movement is Born (1926-27)."
Today is the anniversary of the death of the Trappist monk Thomas Merton. (1968)
