Real Flower Power!

A liturgical new revolution.? The sixties in reverse.

Finally the 50 year lesson is being learned.

The next generation of choir directors have been charged by the Pope with the task of reintroducing beautiful music into church. If they succeed, then at long last the pews may begin to fill up again.

Groovy man.

    Oh I hope so, our music is way too groovy, especially the Lamb of God–my kids call it the “Lamb of God Lounge Lizard Song”. People start bopping about. It feels disrespectful.

    Yes Jill,

    We have endured much liturgical torture. I remember growing up with a twenty guitar choir, everyone of them strumming loudly the same cords.

    I am scarred for life. Gregorian chant is therapy.

    Righteous dude! If I never attend another Brady-Bunch liturgy it will be too soon. And why is it that some people assume the younger generation needs rock instruments to come to mass? A ban on anything called a “teen” mass please! There is only one Mass, with two forms – and the Novus Ordo doesn’t have to be a talent show just because it’s usually not said in Latin. Thank you Papa Ben for showing the world what we should have been doing all along.
    Ave Maria!
