Sounds from the Mass in Glasgow

Sounds from the Mass in Glasgow.

Also, a friend of mine is saying that Our Lord must have sent the Blessed Virgin and angels to clear the skies, given the demons that must be swirling around that Mass.

Moreover, I am told that the SKY TV has put the salient quotes from the Holy Father’s address before Her Majesty the Queen on the crawler at the bottom of their screen.  They have been running constantly the Pope’s words about "some who now seek to exclude religious belief from public discourse".

The Scots have set a high bar for the English.

    Well done, Scotland.

    My dad’s side of the family is half-Scots, half-German, and I can’t help but happily hum Scotland the Brave as I watch the Scots show the English how it’s done.

    I watched the Mass on sky TV. It was brilliant, the whole thing! What a fantastic visit so far. The congregation were singing after Mass, “Will ye no come back again” They love him so much, it’s just so happy, the atmosphere. Best day in ages. Praise God. Now there’s just England to face :( May God keep him safe from all harm.

  4. Oh, heck, I was sobbing like a baby when they started up “Will Ye No Come Back Again” and “Loch Lomond”.

    Or possibly a wee bairn. :)

  5. The music was very beautiful.
    My dad’s side is Scots…proud am I!

    Where would we be without the Mass? After reading some of the awful tripe being passed around about the Holy Father and his visit, just to hear the Kyrie blotted out my despondency and thrilling to the Gloria made me joyful in Christ. Hæc dies quam fecit Dominus: exultemus et lætemur in ea!

    I loved every moment. The The Queen, Prince and Scottish people were wonderful and welcoming…and the Holy Father was his usual luminous self..making his critics look foolish!

  8. irishgirl says:

    I didn’t hear ‘Will Ye No Come Back Again?’ nor ‘Loch Lomond”. EWTN cut away to their studio when the Holy Father left the altar. I would have loved to heard them both, especially the first one!

  9. Vatican Radio is your friend, irishgirl — great sound quality, and the international feed channel doesn’t come with commentary. But someone may have recorded it and put it up on YouTube or other video sites, or one of the news outlets.

    They sang at least four or five famous Scottish songs. Skye Boat Song was one also.

    The sun shone on the Holy Father in more ways than one in Scotland.
    Well done good Scottish folks. I hope there will be a video of the Papal visit soon.

    For those who would like to watch the Mass at Bellahouston Park all the way through, again, is the URL; I’m not sure how long it’ll be up on the site, but I’m re-listening to it right now. I’m hoping it’ll have all the Scottish songs at the end, but at least there is no commentary to interfere with the music.

  12. Mashenka says:

    Alas, all it had was a nicely sung and played “Beethoven’s Ninth” for a recessional. But I did get to hear the last communion hymn, the one in Gaelic sung by the young ladies from the Isle of Barra.
