August 12, 2016

This week, we asked our members about music preferences in the Churches they attended before becoming Catholic.  Many strong opinions came out, but what was notable about the experiences you related was the idea that Catholicism was still Catholicism despite reasonable differences in liturgy, while protestant congregations had trouble maintaining unity between congregations of different musical orientations.  A sampling of the responses: ... more
