1920-2007: Monsignor Richard Schuler, Ph.D.
This is me and my pastor last summer as he treated me to lunch in Hopkins. I was always humbled by his graciousness. He loved to sing the Mass and he taught me the Roman rite.
“How I wept, deeply moved by your hymns, songs, and the voices that echoed through your Church! What emotion I experienced in them! Those sounds flowed into my ears, distilling the truth in my heart. A feeling of devotion surged within me, and tears streamed down my face – tears that did me good.”
-St. Augustine: Confessions 9, 6, 14:PL 32, 769-770
