My kind of ennoble simplicity
I just can't stomach this...."Longing for truth...." "Christ be our light....." Spare me the maple syrup. Oh, was there a WYD recently? It was so unremarkable as to be forgotten.
Yes when I heard that I thought how in the Name of God and all that is Holy is THAT song being sung at an international group of Catholics who work there and why is the Mass in English???? Why not Latin???? Do they all speak English there??????
From the Preface to the Pater Noster PF used Latin. I imagine they all speak English since it's the lingua franca of the Middle East. The music (bombastic but utterly vacuous) was sadly typical for this type of event.
At least the Kyrie was in Greek, and the Eucharistic prayer was in Latin.
