The Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite at Saint Augustine Major Seminary
After the communal dinner Fr. Skelton and Mr. Maturan, a Master of Arts in Theology degree holder was invited to a one hour talk expounding on the forgotten traditonal culture and practices of the Catholic Church. Fr. Skelton shared his conversion story from protestantism to Catholicism due to films depicting Catholicism such as the Song of Bernadette and the Cardinal. His first encounter with Catholicism as a 12 year old boy is when he attended his first solemn Mass at a gothic cathedral in the USA with one of the American Cardinals as celebrant. The sounds and smell of the liturgy were instrumental to his conversion which were lacking in protestantism.
