Vatican cardinal pays tribute to sacred music
June 15, 2011
Offering an overview of the Vatican’s liturgical music manuscripts, the director of the Vatican Library and Secret Archives paid tribute of the Church’s heritage of sacred music.
“In virtue of its univers[al]ity and the fact that it touches the chords of the most profound desire in every man--the encounter with God--sacred music has the capacity to reach and draw in even the most estranged persons, bringing them to the truth of the Word,” said Cardinal Raffaele Farina. “Prayer becomes chant, and chant becomes prayer to give glory to God.”
