(Before It's News)

Thanks to Matthew Swaim of the Coming Home Network for bringing to our attention this video of a very interesting lecture by the late Helen Hull Hitchcock on “Catholic Life in the Colonies.” It was given at their 2007 Deep in History Conference, and includes some neat liturgical tidbits, such as the difficulty of celebrating Catholic Mass in the New World due to restrictions on alcohol, and the lack of beeswax for candles.

Helen Hitchcock, who passed away in October of 2014, was the editor of the Adoremus Bulletin, the monthly publication of the Society for the Renewal of the Sacred Liturgy, which she cofounded in 1995 with Fathers Joseph Fessio, S.J. and Jerry Pokorski. She was also the founding director of Women for Faith & Family and editor of its quarterly journal, Voices, and published many articles and essays in a variety of Catholic journals, as well as The Politics of Prayer: Feminist Language and the Worship of God (Ignatius Press, 1992), a collection of essays on issues in liturgical translation.
