    Janek God is answering your prayers…God bless you and all! God bless this holy Archbishop!

  2. Abeca Christian says:

    “We’ve had enough of exhortations to be silent! Cry out with a hundred thousand tongues. I see that the world is rotten because of silence.” -St. Catherine of Siena

    “You know well enough that Our Lord does not look so much at the greatness of our actions, nor even at their difficulty, but at the love at which we do them.” -St. Therese of Lisieux

  3. Abeca Christian says:

    “Jesus, as soon as He arrived on my tongue (the cause so often of so many sins), made Himself felt immediately. I was no longer in myself but Jesus was in me; He descended to my breast. (I say breast, because I no longer have a heart; I gave it to Jesus’ Mom.) What happy moments I spent with Jesus! How could I return His affections? With what words could I express His love, and for this poor creature? Yet He did deign to come. It’s truly impossible, yes, it is impossible not to love Jesus. How many times He asked me if I love Him and if I truly love Him. And do you still doubt it, my Jesus? So, He unites ever more closely with me, talks to me, says He wants me to be perfect, that He too loves me very much and I should reciprocate.”
    -From the Diary of St Gemma

    • Abeca, you must have a data base full of these quotes & comments you make. My question to you is what is the point of this exercise the AB is doing. Seems to me that he should continue his talks with the individuals at Most Holy Redeemer in SF if he was serious in understanding their point of view. Saving souls is more important than talking about music.

  4. St. Sebastian’s hosts so many sacred liturgies, thanks to Fr. Mark Taheny. Wish I could be there for Vespers on the Feast if the Epiphany. The SF Archdiocese is so blessed to have Ab. Cordileone!

    Ryan, sacred music is a significant part of our Catholic heritage for the reason that it enriches our experience of worship and is spiritually uplifting. Many of the people whose souls can yet be saved are enchanted by sacred music from the Catholic songbook. Great impact can be had upon people through their senses, including when we see beautiful works of religious art, hear people pray, preach, chant or sing, when we read to ourselves silently or someone reads to us, when we speak and/or shake hands with people whose vibrant spirituality is virtually palpable, and when we open our hearts to our fellow man and thus to our Creator.

    Music definitely has its place in worship and in saving souls, including our own. Your disapproval of this endeavor is likely in the distinct minority. I for one cannot get enough of Gregorian chant. So many hymns and Christmas carols fill my heart with joy and love for God as well as appreciation for the creators of the music and those who perform and record it for the listening pleasure of others. So often it is so uplifting!

      Maryanne: Your remarks are so refreshing. I know of too many parishes that have only recently begun singing hymns again, after years of guitar music and drums. I beieve it was Pope Benedict’s gentle reminders to return to sacred music. Kudos to Abp Cordileone for associating his new institute with the nme of our beloved Pope emeritus!
