(Many experienced musicians have never heard that there is such a thing as an Offertory chant in the modern rite.) What you will very rarely come across is a chanted first reading or second reading in the vernacular. Occasionally in seminaries and the like, the Gospel is chanted, but that is still ...http://the-hermeneutic-of-continuity.blogspot.com/2015/08/why-are-readings-not-chanted.html

About Scripture and Music As Part of Mass (Sunday Homily) BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES - August 2, 2015 As mentioned last week, in my homily for the next several weeks, I'm looking closely at the Holy Mass. This week I want to focus on the way we use Scripture at Mass, which goes beyond the readings. The Mass obviously has many parts; and yet it is one, sustained prayer, from beginning to end. Because this can be hard to appreciate, one of the principal ways we cultivate this sense of unity is with music. And yet, I need to warn you: what I'm going to say about music and the ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2015/08/about-scripture-and-music-as-part-of.html

We cannot ignore them or their needs because, as Saint Paul teaches us, "If [one] part suffers, all the parts suffer with it" ( I Corinthians 12:26 ). It was not that long ago that people outside Germany looked back at the terrors of the concentration camps and asked, "How did they allow this to happen? How did they not see it coming? Why did they say nothing? Why did they do nothing?" Before ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/ONaF_2DoxKA/homily-19-july-2015.html

Of Star Trek, Pope Francis & Encyclicals A FRIAR'S LIFE - July 18, 2015 ... balance with the created world around it. Now, believe it or not, all of this was leading me to think more deeply about the recent encyclical of Pope Francis which came out just about a month ago called Laudato Si . Or Praised be You. I read an article a few weeks ago that was asking if many Catholics had heard a homily preached on this first great encyclical of the Holy Father, and many, sadly, had not. And I began to wonder why? I think that the answer lies ...http://afriarslife.blogspot.com/2015/07/of-star-trek-pope-francis-encyclicals.html

But they did not at first call themselves Christians; rather, they were called Christians by those who wished to denigrate them and point out how differently they lived. Even so, because the designation was true, because the early disciples of Jesus were followers of Christ, they took the derogatory ...http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/blogspot/OhEL/~3/Y_U0bwanPIo/homily-12-july-2015.html

"She was wonderful," Juan answered. "She said 'I may be blind, but I can still tell that you're good looking!'" I told him that it was clear Terry Sangster lives by faith and not by sight! That humorous story captures the spirit of a great lady, but it also introduces the subject of my homily today: growing old gracefully.

In Praise of Dualism GETTING TO THE POINT - May 11, 2015 ... reflecting the goodness of God, less and less stained by the sorrow and darkness of evil. We know in the fullness of Christian revelation that this is the work of grace in us, and of the Holy Spirit bringing to us the grace of Christ, in which our own efforts are only a small (if necessary) part.
