A Very Catholic Post



If you are not one of my handful of Catholic readers, I suggest you look away now.


As you know, I do my best to be as ecumenical as I can. I'm all for this one flock and one shepherd business - just ask the Monday morning Methodist Bible study group.


But when Fr. J, (a post Vatican 2 priest if ever you met one) sings the Kyrie, Sanctus and Agnus Dei from the Missa de Angelis, preaches from the pulpit and rounds off the Mass with 'Faith of Our Fathers', well, you just can't beat it, in my opinion.


I sang all the way home. When I got there, I said to the Football Fanatic:

'I'm telling you, if he carries on like this, he be rooting in the back of that wardrobe and dusting that biretta off before Advent Sunday'.

To which the Football Fanatic replied:

'FATHER J's GOT A GUN????'

Too much Al Pacino and not enough Bing Crosby, if you ask me.





For nostalgic Catholics:




and for Working Mum:

Aw, thanks. And to think I nearly looked away, being wishy washy C of E! Can't beat a bit of Gregorian Chant.

I didn't really get it, i'm not Catholic but thought it was a good post anyway.

Feel guilty now, snored my way through church today. Mind you, i did buy some raffle tickets afterwards.

I like a bit of Gregorian Chant too - very soothing. I've also seen that Bing Crosby film more times than is healthy for a woman of my beliefs.

Heheheheheh... tell him to use it to take pot-shots at anyone who dares sing out of tune!

(Very good, Jackie, I actually scared the cat by laughing out loud...)

When the psalm response a couple of weeks ago was rendered in gregorian notation--not even true gregorian, mind you, sort of pseudo gregorian--our choir fell apart. Even the director, who is 85 years old, mind you, had no idea what was going on. I was dumbstruck. I recognized it, but certainly could not do it by myself.

That is laugh out loud hilarious!!

Oh, our priest forgot or omitted the Creed today at Mass - I don't know if anyone else noticed (other than my husband and kids 'cos I was figeting in my pew and low-grade freaking out . . . but oh what can you do?

my oldest daughter is in the school choir. they have been singing kyrie. i know that the teacher had asked if anyone had a problem singing that due to religion. odd to have religious songs in public school, but i think my daughter likes this particular song.

Dusty Spider said...

I'm newly Catholic (since 2007) and I can appreciate a good chant but I do like to spice it up a bit as well.

My husband is a cradle Catholic and thinks chanting is all the singing we should be singing in church - none of this new fangled music with pianos and harmonies for him!

Maggie May said...

aaahhhhhh! That WAS funny!

Renae said...

Beautiful. If I weren't married to a preacher, I might even consider converting . . . ;-)

Thanks for sharing.

I was opinion the other day that there be required to be a way for the sake my kids to business at home what they learn in class. Then it bash me - songs!! Come down with a melody going hoop-shaped and honest in their heads and they'll never overlook it!
The fine kettle of fish is that most English songs have too onerous and often not very utilitarian lyrics. So I obvious to detract a song in compensation each of my English games, using at best the vocabulary acclimatized in stock! This is the inception "How are you?
