First, a happy Thanksgiving to all Americans and a happy belated Thanksgiving to all Canadians. For the rest of you, a happy whatever holiday allows you a four day weekend and the opportunity to induce a gluttonous stupor.
A few days ago, I was directed by another blog to yet another blog where I read an essay about how many Catholic bloggers are always focusing on the negative and is that really a Christian attitude? I'd link it, but I can't find it and I'm too lazy to google it. Besides, there's something vaguely unsettling about google, is there not? Just how do those people know so much about so many other people and their various activities and what not, hmmmm? No sir, don't like it.
Anyway, where was I? Oh, yes. This essay. Which made me realize that every time I post something it's negative. So today, on this day set aside by our masonic overlords influenced by Enlightenment thinking to give thanks to our non-denominational great Architect in the sky, I thought I would post things that I really like. Specifically, church songs. I maintain it would be too much to call them hymns, but they are music of a sort. These aren't the only songs I like. Just the ones you might not suspect. And I can't be held responsible for their theological dubiousness. Or the poor You Tube performances.
Finally, a really nice one. Though, I must say, this version is troubling. It sounds too....what's the word I'm looking for....traditional. Yes, that's it. It would sound much better on a guitar.
Stop your internal dialog. We can't have Palestrina at every Mass, now can we? See, I really am just a harmless little teddy bear. With flowers in my hair...
