Marty Haugen’s Liturgical Dance Party
I don’t understand why Marty Haugen’s music (?) is still being used by any Roman Catholic parish.
Maybe I’ll write more about this later.
Yet, I will say that is strange to sing a song to nature after the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
There is a connection between bad liturgical music and the crisis in the Church. It almost reminds me of some Haugen lyrics:
“They blow where they will. They blow where they please.”
Those of course, are the winds that blow to please the Lord in Haugen’s “Canticle of the Sun.” Sounds relativistic. Unholy Nation’s Board of Heretical Hymns suggests that what he’s really talking about are the winds of progressive Catholicism. We also can’t call hymnals “hymnals” because it contains the sound “him”–therefore, we must refer to them as “music issues.” The irony behind that label is that the music contained inside actually has issues.
Unfortunately, we all know where the story ends.
Some folks don’t understand that our missalettes reflect our faith.
We can’t have Catholic covers and Protestant innards.
Sancta Caecilia, ora pro nobis!
