Go forth, the Mass is ended. Thanks be to God. Apparently, the bishops are debating whether they should say "for many" or "for the many". Oh NO! Marty Haugen's Mass of Creation will be unuseable. Personally I would hope the Pope says,"Well, since my Exhortation says the people should learn their parts in latin and Gregorian chant shoudld still have pride of place, until new English settings can be composed, you should use the Jubilate Deo, considering that was what it was composited for. After all the Latin isn't new, only the English translation has been corrected.
The pdf version from Fr. One of my younger co workers called me over to his computer early this week. It was a sexed up, tarted up, sleazed up little thing, which offended him greatly. Now, the man is young, in his early twenties, and quite intelligent. He has a high tolerance for progressiveness and permissiveness- but this was too far. He had a line, and this video crossed it. He didn't understand my seeming indifference. I explained to him as best I could: I too had a line, and it had been crossed a long time ago.
When dealing with any human activity there are two places where a line can most easily, and legitimately, be drawn: all, or nothing. Trying to debate a line anywhere in between is all but impossible. You claim one, but not two, or two, but not three. Monday, but not Tuesday. He was trying to draw a line in the middle. Basically: Sex? Yeah, but not if you get paid for it. I actually applaud my young friend. Though he is more lax than I would like, he does have some morals.
He has some sense of right and wrong. In a word, he has lines that he thinks should not be crossed. We can work with that. I have seen too many who don't have lines, but a price. Offer them what they want, and they will do anything. Anything at all. But we have crossed the line, and moved away from nothing. We are at a point of "some". The answer to my young friend's surprise at my lack of surprise was simple: I already knew the principle of "sex sells. We are carried from one, to two, to three, and all of those points get passed over because none of those can stand.
Once you begin on the road, the question is simply how far, and the answer always seems to be: a little bit farther.

Another case in point: it is Friday night, and I won't go anywhere near my tv. It's a catholic blog, I won't say why, save that it has crossed way beyond my line. It has been a long slide downhill. I can say, with a pun, it has been a Hell of a ride. I stop it by turning off my tv.

Labels: Prayer Requests. I took Elder to the get an ultrasound today, along with some blood work and urinalysis. Nothing came of the ultrasound immediately, so it's probably not too bad. Elder's problem was that every week she would be sick for a day or so, and then fine, and then sick again the next week.
This week's round began with her coming into our bedroom at 3 in the morning on Wednesday and saying: "Daddy, I feel nauseous. You go take care of it. We debated until Puff said "Fine! During which Elder felt nauseous again and ran to the other bathroom. Just as Puff had finished up, we heard the weak voice come to us "Oh no, I missed again. And so on for the rest of the night. So we took her to the doctor who examined her and noticed she was in pain around her liver and gallbladder, so he sent us for the ultrasound. The technicians wouldn't tell us anything for the time being, which may be a good sign, or at least a sign that this is not an emergency.

I have curtailed my reading of other blogs, and may cut it back further. When I first found out about the blogosphere and the God Blogs in particular I was fascinated by the phenomena, and excited at the possibility of finding like minds, of finding people of faith like myself.
But as time wore on I noticed something else. I can't say it started at such a point and started growing, because it has always been there. In my original enthusiasm I didn't pay it much attention to it. I can do so no longer. What I saw brought to mind a passage from 1 Corinthians It reads: "And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity. Catholic bloggers should have these three virtues in abundance. But often Charity is sadly lacking. Many blogs that used to be part of my daily reading are filled with rage, spite, contempt, disdain and even hatred.
I do not know how long one can go on feeling such things without coming to despair, which is nothing but a loss of hope and faith. There is, I believe, righteous indignation. There is a zeal for just causes. I do not speak of such things. They are fueled by Love of God which drives us forward. I believe Chesterton once said of soldiers that the true ones fight not because of what is in front of them, but for what is behind them.
There seems to be a point, an elusive one, where we run the danger of shifting between the two, and focusing on that thing in front, and being motivated by our hatred of it, and straying from the love of God. Is there anyone out there who has found the same or similar? Or perhaps I am completely off the mark. I am speaking of a fine dividing line, an infinitely fine line, it seems.
Is it possible that some bloggers, in trying to express their faith, have left it behind? Can we possibly stray with them? On this Day Their capture Vimy ridge has become part of our national mythology, a story of how 4 divisions of Canadians, fighting together for the first time, took what our founding nations could not.

Though our men fought bloodier battles, and more significant battles Vimy was part of a grand plan of attack, and it was the plan's sole success it was also only considered a diversion- no-one thought they could do it. My grandfather was among them. As far as I can tell, it was his first time going over the top.
He never spoke of the war after, not even of how he earned his decorations. I never met the man, but I am proud to call such a man my grandfather. Turns out I didn't have to play in the end. I practiced very hard all week, but this new tune eluded me. I began to get it near the end, but I just ran out of time.
I'll probably have it by next week. Half way through the week I wrote to the MD and said that I am working hard, but I find this particular piece quite awkward to play. He wrote back: "You do know you don't have to play all the notes, don't you? Playing only the top and bottom became even more difficult in some ways: it is often easier to learn an entirely new piece than to learn a slightly different one.

To play just the top and bottom, I had to unlearn the what I had just spent four days learning. Plus I had to learn a new Mass setting for the other choir I sing with. As I said, I just ran out of time. You professionals may laugh at me, I certainly do, and you may even be horrified that a hack such as I was asked to play at all- and I agree with you there as well. That I was prepared to do my best if necessary is my only defence.
In the end we recorded the song on the electric piano, and I replayed it for the choir. Unfortunately they started a beat late and then dropped four bars. I turned the piano off and we went on a capella. We weren't too bad, all things considered. The only real glitches of the weekend both happened on the vigil. They've done it before. I just rolled my eyes this time. I've stopped thinking "Must In fact we did nothing but a gospel acclamation.
The Soprano was late coming to Mass, and missed the Gospel, and the organist didn't feel he and I were ready to do the sequence. I think this was a case for "ready or not Especially when I don't agree with them. The other blot: Father had liturgical dancers at the Vigil, or liturgical movement, or something. I cringed, I really don't care for this sort of thing, but it wasn't too intrusive.
They brought up water for the baptisms, and they carried down the aisle with a twirl or two. Father was asking people what they thought. I was too late to speak to him myself, but if I had the chance to answer his question I would have said: "You know, father, if they were to ask me for your head now, I'd have to give it to them. In my last post I mentioned how the choir really managed to dodge a bullet.
That bullet was me, so to speak, although I was also taking one for the team. He plays for the United first, then makes a beeline for us. The Sunday before last he calls me over and asks me a favour. It turns out he couldn't, because that organist also plays for two churches, and he took off immediately after his Masses here. I was "it". I spent the week practicing "All Glory Praise and Honour". I got okay with it, but I kept making random mistakes. To you who play, you know the problem- if I am consistent in my errors, I can target the problem- but random errors are a lack of general proficiency.
Worse, I have a tendency to try and correct the error before moving on, which is nothing short of disaster for accompaniment playing. Worst of all, I had no chance to familiarize myself with the church organ, so I would be playing an unfamiliar instrument, without a warm up. The day came, and as I looked out from the choir loft I felt my apprehension turn into a fair panic.
Sweat rolled. I will confess, when I play my organ at home, in my heart I am often miles away, at the console of some great pipe organ, my notes echoing through some vast, beautiful cathedral. I have been curious about trying to play for a Mass, one day. I thought the time to start would be on a summer's Sunday, when half the church is on vacation.
But I never had any intention of making my debut on Palm Sunday, before a standing room only Church. My pulse was getting out of hand. If I used my heartbeat to help pace my playing, I would go beyond Allegro, straight past Presto, and into Come un Pipistrello del inferno.
I fumbled over the keys, trying to warm up, while silently praying to Sts. Register for FREE 1st month. Download your desired books 3. Easy to cancel your membership.
