If you go to Milan today you can still meet people who knew him. Italians, (and the rest of us) claim him as the greatest liturgist of the twentieth century. Meet "the" Blessed Schuster.

The best thing is to read this splendor on the sunny Italian balcony with an old-fashioned Cherry Coke (Coca-Cola and grenadine) with highlights from Tosca by Puccini.
