Re: Clericalism?

Faith, hope and social support? Indeed. That is something the bishop should be organising for his priests - even more so, now that numbers are declining and they become more isolated. And of course a half-decent parish will have the kind of relationship with their priests that is mutually enriching...

Re: Clericalism?

Parishes get stuck. It takes a lot of effort to bring life to a parish. Most of the laity seem to expect the priests to do it, and many of them have just given up hope and are ticking over. And of course there are priests who are so unsure of their own role that they keep the laity "in their place" ...

Curious that those responsible for the current English language text for the Mass actually used the inclusive term "people" in that phrase, as opposed to their usual preference for "men".
It must have slipped through, given that inclusive language usually brings them out in a rash.

Re: Liturgical Tourism

Its a really good joyful setting. Alas there seem to be no simple, memorably and zingy setting for the new translation. Unless people know different ...... You might almost suspect that the new translation was deliberately constructed to impede memorableness and zinginess. And on earth peace to peo...

Re: Liturgical Tourism

Its interesting that the French seem not to have got the message about not using paraphrases of the gloria etc.

Used to sing that. Fine words - have to take care with the speed or those quavers can gabble.

Re: Hymns for Confirmation?

We use this Dona Pena song - I say "Yes" my Lord..Although it doesn't mention the Spirit explicitly the words are very apt. And people can join in easily while the candidates are being confirmed. NB - we don't do the Spanish! As usual with GIA there is a recording to listen to. https://www.giamusic....
