A Small Victory

In one of my earlier posts I lamented the neutering, as such, of God the Father in many of the hymns sung today, and occasionally in prayers.

This morning at Mass, the music director told everyone (paraphrasing) that according to the Catholic Church directives as printed in such-and-such publication, the version of The Gloria we have been singing, in which "His" has been replaced by "God's" is not to be used; the word "His" is to be sung. Then she said "when you sing the song, sing it AS IT IS PRINTED (emphasis mine), not how we have been singing it".

Not me, lady, I have been singing "His" every time.

  1. I still sing Yahweh time to time - guess I'm just not all that in sync with our Jewish Brethren! It was written the way it was written - get over it already!
