Beauty, the Major Evangelizer: How Signs of the Sacred Point to the Ultimate Good by Joseph Pronechen
“The archbishop noted that Frank La Rocca, the Benedict XVI Institute’s composer-in-residence, ‘created a superb new Mass for Our Lady of Guadalupe and Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception called The Mass of the Americas.’ Its premiere was broadcast on EWTN and was so well received that, after being performed at San Francisco’s Cathedral of St. Mary of the Assumption, La Rocca’s composition went to Tijuana and will be heading in the future to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington D.C., the Houston Co-Cathedral of the Sacred Heart, and then on to Mexico City, Rome and beyond, ‘because it is both beautiful and original, and yet clearly part of the great sacred music tradition of the Church.’”
