Begging your indulgence

On vacation for the next couple of weeks, including travel to Sequim, WA, the most beautiful place on the planet, to help settle Dad's estate. May not be posting much, but I'll be back.

Mean time, attended a beautiful mass at Lapeer, MI's Immaculate Conception parish this weekend. Very good organist, mostly trad song selections, but Schutte's "Here I Am, Lord" was used at communion. They use the old Boston Archdiocese "Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs" - they rebound all their copies a few years ago when they couldn't find anything new they liked, but have since also purchased Gather Comprehensive. Priest's homily was about sin - didn't give us a good tie-in to the readings, though it should have been easy enough. I think he just wanted to talk about sin. So much for "opening up the Gospel".
