For all our liturgical worship, we have retained the use of Gregorian chant and the Latin language. For centuries the Church has expressed her love for her Lord in Gregorian Chant, "which springs from the depths of the soul where faith dwells and charity burns" (Pope Paul VI). Far from being a museum piece or relegated to dusty tomes, Gregorian chant is a school of prayer, a source of beauty and truth, and a powerful means of raising the heart and mind to God.
