When, o when will I learn that it's better for me not to read the stupid comments' section? Good grief.

Oh don't look now but it seems the episcopelians are about to gain a couple of members.  ;D

Look it is always sad when a soul is lost, however I think these souls were lost long before we found out about it.

What a breath of fresh air! The music for the last 22 years was probably all hymns so syrupy they'd make Willy Wonka ill. I hope the priest imports a real music director now, rather than someone who likely just used everything that felt the "nicest". ;D

Ha, I hadn't even thought of that.

Go thy ways, old Jack;
die when thou wilt, if manhood, good manhood, be
not forgot upon the face of the earth, then am I a
shotten herring. There live not three good men
unhanged in England; and one of them is fat and
grows old: God help the while! a bad world, I say.
I would I were a weaver; I could sing psalms or any
thing. A plague of all cowards, I say still.

Lets hope Archbishop Myers of the Archdiocese of Newark doesn't punish him. Some of these music ministers are soo into themselves it's disgusting.

Modernism.

No, really, a dark cloud of bad taste for hymnody has been hanging over Catholic-dom since the late 1800's, if not before. Plainchant is the remedy.
