He warned us of a couple of things, that his talk was long and that ... TERESA'S TWO CENTS - February 12, 2017 ... that, going forward, I will take them all seriously. When we rehearsed "Brighten My Soul With Sunshine," I thought I was singing something from Godspell. I kept up with the part in rehearsal but lost my place live, coming in with the sopranos and tenor instead of with the other altos. I was so ashamed. We didn't rehearse "There is a Balm in Gilead" because it's assumed that everyone knows it. But I do not. And then this somewhat dark tune in G minor which I liked. 1 6th Sunday After Epiphany ...http://teresatwocents.blogspot.com/2017/02/he-warned-us-of-couple-of-things-that.html

No Reason for Bravado IN HIM ALONE - January 17, 2017 ... devastating. Of course, even those who do nothing more than sit in the pew each Sunday are not safe from the devil's stratagem. Every Christian, even the laity, has a bull's-eye painted on his or her soul. If the devil can destroy any Christian's testimony, then think of the collateral damage he causes in the person's family, among friends, co-workers, and neighbors. Anyone who walks close to Jesus knows that the days in which we live are evil. A deeply visceral, spiritual darkness has spread ...http://thecontemplativecatholicconvert.blogspot.com/2017/01/no-reason-for-bravado.html
Sifted Like Wheat IN HIM ALONE - January 16, 2017 ... seeks first to destroy church shepherds and leaders. In so doing he maximizes the damage he can cause to the person in the pew and in the community outside the church. And let's also be very clear, even those who do nothing more than sit in the pew each Sunday are not safe from the devil's stratagem. Simply because you are a Christian means you've got a bull's-eye painted on your soul. If he can destroy your testimony, then think of the collateral damage he causes in your family and among your ...http://thecontemplativecatholicconvert.blogspot.com/2017/01/sifted-like-wheat.html
Why Is Oregon Catholic Press Ruining Christmas Songs? BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - December 27, 2016 We had a beautiful Christmas in Russia, thanks to many people, including our music director and many wonderful helpers in the choir loft, and our many readers, ushers, altar servers and others who each contributed. I was especially moved at Midnight Mass -- my favorite Mass of the year; so much so, that the sad bowdlerization of the great hymn, "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing" did not much dim my joy. Here is what I'm talking about. In verse two, we hear: ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2016/12/why-is-oregon-catholic-press-ruining.html

21 Days of Thankfulness: My Photographic Attitude of Gratitude Project (Day 10) Music That Inspires PRINTS OF GRACE - November 13, 2016 ... Disney movies. It's amazing how everyone's mood seems to improve when music is involved. I don't play an instrument, but I sure do love to sing! Last Monday, as part of our middle school religious ed night at church, we had two teams compete to see who could "name that tune" before their opponents. I recognized a number of the music from animated movies I grew up watching, many of them Disney classics that first came out in my youth. Sometimes, I could sing the song, but I wasn't able to spit ...http://printsofgrace.blogspot.com/2016/11/21-days-of-Thankfulness-My-Photographic-Attitude-of-Gratitude-Project-Day-10-Music-that-Inspires.html
