I had the privilege of serving Mass with Msgr. Barreiro in Italy. What a wonderful spiritual experience it was! The Church has lost another champion of tradition. God bless him. May he rest in peace. In Domino, dom. Charles, CPMO
Thank you and also see my comment to Aaron.
In 2015, a seven-song mini-album entitled ‘Home’ by the bespectacled Australian singer/songwriter appropriately enough had all its songs written, recorded, produced and performed at home by Dustin. Not surprisingly there was a mood of solitary contemplation running right through this work. Much of it was captured in a dark bedroom during the wee small hours and it showed. The release was accompanied by a national tour in the largest venues he’d ever played as word of mouth spread about his distinctly evocative music.
This PDF of a document that was originally hand-written and photocopied, is filled with stream of consciousness writings on everything from bible passages and church experiences to speculations on the names of various businesses including multiple storage facilities and Pizza Hut. Constantly disrupting the writing are searches for words within words. It is a text that will test the patience of most, however its density and extremism have an unsettling power.
The donor of this PDF, Giles Hefferan, writes, "The manifesto was given to a friend of mine somewhere around 1997 or 98 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. A man who was presumably the author came in to my friend's workplace and handed her a copy and said something like 'you might want this', almost apologetically. It was photocopied and I made more copies and gave them to my friends— as far as I know it is complete, at least since I have had it, but I know that it appears to be missing pages and sometimes repeats page numbers."
