That was beautiful! Both the chant and the humility.
Very beautiful! I hope to see more and more of the Chant!
Is the Church doing any better in the Netherlands? Numbers wise, does anybody know?
This simple example provides a poignant illustration of the universality and timelessness of chant. It is so encouraging to see that the young are wiser than their elders. Deo Gratias, Tom
With God raising up priests like Fr. Roderick in the Netherlands, I think there must be a resurgence coming. Of course, the situation there is difficult, with both large numbers of literally godless people and large numbers of Muslims, and a good amount of traditional anti-Catholicism. But things can get better!
Maureen: Fr. Roderick has from time to time spoken about the problems plaguing the Church in Holland, but if these seminarians are anything to go by, it sure does appear to be getting better!
This seminary is doing very well.
The bishop, the rector and the spiritual director (a Legionary of Christ from Irland) are all working in the same Catholic direction. This is a sign of hope.
But also keep in mind: There is a lot of good music and even some Latin in the liturgy in the Netherlands, but many times it ist combined with liturgical abuse or the singesrs just do not go to Church on Sunday if it is not their turn to sing…
