Californian pastor passes away

An interesting story about a priest in California who recently passed away. As normal, there are some inaccuracies and misportrayals about our liturgical tradition -- including the fact that the classical Roman liturgy was not the sole liturgy celebrated prior to the Second Vatican Council; there were of course other liturgical rites, such as the Ambrosian, Carmelite, Dominican, etc., in the West as well. This is a generally lost point that, as you know, I want to continue to drive home to people.
