This might be one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen!
As you may heard by now, the Great Turnpike Mass of 2016 wasn’t the only Mass held in an unusual place by pro-lifers stranded by the blizzard. Another group of pro-life students who got stuck on the Pennsylvania Turnpike was able to make it to a nearby motel, where 250 kneeling students sang Gregorian chant and celebrated an ad orientem high Mass in the motel’s bar room!
“The students, many of whom are enrolled in our choirs,” Fr. Joshua Caswell, SJC, who was leading the group from St. John Cantius parish in Chicago, told ChurchPOP, “sang the Gregorian Chant ordinaries from the Missa de Angelis—and with gusto! The youth also sang some motets, including one in four parts.” He added: “I have never seen a more reverent scene.”

If you were wishing you could’ve been there to this the holy and beautiful sight, you’re in luck! ChurchPOP was able to get a hold of two videos from the amazing Mass – both with the teens singing beautiful, multipart chant!
