Much in what he says …

… The Young Poet and the Inauguration - The Catholic Thing. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

Fulton Sheen wrote God and Intelligence in Modern Philosophy (1925), not troubling to translate for his readers many a quotation from the original French or Latin. He brought that same learning and literary erudition, wearing it lightly, to his tremendously popular television show.

What happened?

A lot of things, of course, but near the top is the obvious fact that people who lead our cultural institutions do not know the arts, and do not care to learn.

Take contemporary hymns. Take them, please.
