Camino De Santiago

Along with a group very special friends, my brother Tim, and two Priests, we will be walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain beginning in August. Please friend me "Deacon Pat Kearns" on Facebook to follow the journey. I realize with limited internet, Facebook will be the easiest way to share the journey. I will share more on the blog when I return. I am also looking forward to using the experience in the current novel I am work on "Climbing Out of the Darkness."

Liturgical Music - Where has it gone?

For many years I have felt that the music at Mass has lost something. It isn't that the musicians are not talented - they are. It isn't that they don't rehearse - they do. And they are good and devout people, so that isn't the problem.
But for years, I have heard from parishioners that they wished the music at Mass was better, complaining about our music.
But when I asked specifically what was so bad about the music, I would hear a variety of complaints.

Then it hit me..... I think many of us have varied ideas and understandings of what we think Liturgical music should be.

I think this video can explain, much better than I can,

what Liturgical Music is and should be.

I hope that we can instill these ideas and bring a sense of the extreme Holiness of the Mass back into our churches through Sacred and Truly Liturgical Music.
