"Hello God, My Old Friend... I've Come To Talk To You Again"
I'll give it an 8. It's got a good beat and you can dance to it

Absurd and insipid reach a new low in the great spiritual desert otherwise known as the Cape Fear Deanery. "C" sent this in response to NYPD Green's posting on the upcoming (one time shot) Traditional Latin Mass here in Wilmington; Cavey, thank you so much for letting us know about this. I'll spread it around to everyone I know! This will be quite a contrast to last night, where I kid you not, the Our Father was sung to the tune of Simon and Garfunkel's "Sounds of Silence." You can't make this stuff up!!I'm not sure which parish in the deanery this happened, but I've got it narrowed down to "most of them". I can think of one parish that wouldn't allow this to happen. It's also the same that's hosting the TLM this upcoming Sunday.

And to ensure the record is straight, "C" isn't a hard-core Traddie. He's a young guy who was raised in the Novus Ordo and has tried his whole life to be a good Catholic.

And without any prompting from the likes of me, he's starting to see for himself what a horrible direction the Church in America is taking, and what kind of garbage the Novus Ordo opens the door for.

BTW "C", hat tip to NYPD Green (not me) for passing the word!

From the,'from the mouths of babes' department.

My wife was trying to figure out how 'The Sound of Silence' fit with the Our Father, so she tried singing a few bars while cleaning up after dinner. Our 8 year old who has autism looked at her during her 'performance' and deadpanned, 'I don't get it'.
Go figure, what is probably considered part of the 'target audience' for such liberties in liturgies aren't getting their socks rocked like these music liturgists would like to think!

How in the theological place of eternal damnation can the Our Father be sung to the tune of "Sounds of Silence"?

What next "Tiptoe thru the Tulips"?


PS Don't let the DBQ liturgical committee find out, or it will be required here as well.
