Great.


Now that dang song is stuck in my brain(see earlier post). Here's the part that is most amazing:

The one(put your finger up like a #1) way to peace(yes, you got it, make the sign of peace, dude) is the power(fist up like Hulk) of the cross(cross your two pointer fingers in the air), His banner over me(join your fingertips in the air, over head) is love(hands over heart).

Now you got it! It's the happy first communion song!

While searching online for someone "performing" this ditty, I came across this interesting find:
PSALMS, HYMNS, AND SPIRITUAL SONGS: ROMAN CATHOLIC LITURGICAL MUSIC IN THE UNITED STATES SINCE VATICAN II

If you have the time, it is interesting and a bit eerie. This was presented in 1997(more than 10 years ago) and by Fr. Jan Michael Joncas. Hmm. After reading that, I need to empty my brain again so I can cut and sew today. Too much for a Monday...

Well, how far from that photo are some Catholic parishes? Spooky.

not far at all. heck we sing lutheran hymns all the time and our "music issue" is just packed with baptist hymns...i remember them from my baptist childhood well.

MUSIC ISSUE?????
ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just when I was missing being a Church musician, you immediately snapped me back into reality.

For these and all of my other musical sins, I am truly sorry.

PFEW>>>>> Thank you, Cordelia.

BTW: I love this site, TITP! I plan to visit more often. Keep it up!
