Liturgy Conference in Collegeville! “Worship in a Changing Church”

Fifty years after Vatican II, a new pope is leading in a new style. The church around the world is becoming more diverse – more multicultural, more varied in musical repertoires, and with more tension between contemporary and traditional liturgical styles. How can musicians and liturgical ministers make the best use of old and new, and draw in young people, with the best resources and skills to respond to a rapidly changing church? PrayTell offer: register for the conference and get a $5 gift card to Liturgical Press.

Yves Congar, My Journal of the Council, Part XXVIII

Ukrainian Mass. I dearly love the Easterners, but it is a bit much to keep giving us Masses which last for more than an hour when there is so much work to be done. … It is absurd. But in Rome, no-one knows what work is.
