Mass Medley — Saying goodbye to those wretched “gathering hymns”

HAT TIP/CATHOLIC AGGIES: The Gather Hymnal Redux

“With the new Mass translations coming out this year, the “Gather” hymnal will sadly become obsolete…”

With that in mind, I composed a tribute medley to some of the best songs contained therein. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a hymnal around when I was tracking this, so I did the best I could to remember the lyrics from memory. Enjoy!


5 Minutes of Mercy… For Everyman

A song of mercy for you on this Divine Mercy Sunday…

The Origin of Man, or, The Ancient Seeds of Sacred Music Found Within the Life Teen Mass?

Forgive me, I couldn’t help the title for this post after viewing the video! What’s worse, is I almost entitled it the ‘Catholic Homecoming Anthem’ in hopes of drawing back all those children of the Church who lost their faith during this bizarre era. God does works in mysterious ways!!! However, being a people of justice, and thankful for the talents each of us receives, I believe there is absolutely no reason why the Monkees should not be included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! (Hey, at least ‘they’ kept the organ!).  You can find out more and help put The Monkees in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame by signing the petition here. As for me, ‘I’m a believer’ in avoiding Life Teen Masses… enjoy. [Note: some kind person just now sent me a article on the Teen Mass over at the Curt Jester–go figure!]
