Tragic[ally Unhip] Worship: What Have We Become? SOUTHERN FRIED CATHOLICISM - May 16, 2013 ... amounts to: distraction and diversion. Praise bands and songs of triumph seem designed in form and content to distract worshipers from life's more difficult realities. Even funerals, the one religious context where one might have assumed the reality of death would be unavoidable, have become the context for that most ghastly and incoherent of acts: the celebration of a life now ended. The Twenty-Third Psalm and "Abide with Me" were funeral staples for many years but not so much ...http://www.southernfriedcatholicism.com/2013/05/tragically-unhip-worship-what-have-we.html
An Introduction to Chant (ii) COUNTERCULTURAL FATHER - April 13, 2013 ... psalter (150 psalms) regularly, it is not surprising to find that simple melodic structures were developed which could be used to sing large numbers of psalms. Each of these could have developed somewhat independently, and could have been influenced by other musical traditions from other cultures: certainly there are different styles associated with different elements of the Chant we have inherited. Or it may not have happened that way. Perhaps the whole collection was ...http://ccfather.blogspot.com/2013/04/an-introduction-to-chant-ii.html
Mother of God, Portress of the Holy Mysteries VULTUS CHRISTI - March 27, 2013 Wednesday of Holy Week At Saint Mary Major Today's Roman Stational Church is the Basilica of Saint Mary Major. We go, in spirit, to this ancient church of the Mother of God, asking her to be present to us as we prepare to cross the threshold into the Paschal Triduum. We go to the suffering Christ, to the Crucified, to the Risen One with and through his most holy Mother. The Virgin of Sorrows is the Portress of the Holy Mysteries, the Keeper of the Door ...http://vultus.stblogs.org/2013/03/mother-of-god-portress-of-the.html
Mundelein Psalter Update COFFEE AND CANTICLES - March 25, 2013 Last week a reader pointed out that after buying the Mundelein psalter (on my recommendation) and going to their website to look up the (recommended by me) audio files of psalm tones for chanting, they weren't there. I verified this terrible loss to all would-be amateur chanters, and wrote to Fr. Martis (author/editor of the Psalter) for an explanation. Here is what came back today: Daria, Thank you for your note. ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CoffeeAndCanticles-TheDivineOfficeInYourLife/~3/hnJ8SvCWeek/mundelein-psalter-update.html
Feast of the Chair of St. Peter LIFE OF A CATHOLIC LIBRARIAN - February 22, 2013 ... year, it seems particularly poignant that it falls within the week that Pope Benedict XVI will resign. According to my Proper of Saints for February 22nd: Chair of Peter, Apostle Since the fourth century, the feast of the Chair of Peter has been celebrated at Rome as a sign of the unity of the Church founded upon that apostle. There are special antiphons for today, plus a completely separate reading, intercessions and prayer. For Evening Prayer, I see that we ...http://lifeofacatholiclibrarian.blogspot.com/2013/02/feast-of-chair-of-st-peter.html
Why St. John Bosco Doesn't Rate the Entire Common of Pastors COFFEE AND CANTICLES - February 1, 2013 I got this question from someone on Google+: Today is 31 Jan, which is the memorial of St. John Bosco. The St. Joseph Guide for the Liturgy of the Hours says that I should take the Psalmody from the Psalter (the usual Week III for this week) for Vespers. I just checked the Divine Office Web site (www.divineoffice.org) and they have also taken the Psalmody from Week III of the Psalter.Why wouldhttp://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CoffeeAndCanticles-TheDivineOfficeInYourLife/~3/pI99dNA8Jsc/why-st-john-bosco-doesnt-rate-entire.html
