Of your charity, pray for the repose of Gustav Mahler

Who a convert from Judaism to the Catholic Faith, wrote this glorious symphony concerning the Resurrection, died one hundred years ago today.

It is the answer on the one side to Bishop Williamson and on the other to ultra- modernist interpretations about the relationship between Judaism and the Catholic Church.

Before such beauty and faith, all such disputes should be silent.  

Non in dialectica complacuit Deo salvum facere populum suum
