WHAT DO CATHOLICS WANT, YOUNG OR OLD?
I've been blessed for most of my priesthood not to be in a parish with folk music. When I got to my new assignment almost two years ago, during the academic year there was a "Lifeteen Mass" which featured worship and praise music twice a month on Sunday afternoon.
I soon discovered that the six or seven people in the choir loft, only two were teenagers and the rest people my age and older.
I soon discovered too that out of the 60 or so people present for this Sunday Mass, only about 10 to 12 were teenagers, the rest my age and much, much older.
Guess who were the one who resented me for canceling the Lifeteen Mass after my first year here?
It wasn't the kids; it was the crowd my age and older.
I saw this at Fr. Z's blog with his caption, what young people want and what old people (my age) want young people to want.
Do you think this is true????????
