“One would be straying from the straight path were he to wish the altar restored to its primitive table form; were he to want black excluded as a color for the liturgical vestments; were he to forbid the use of sacred images and statues in Churches; were he to order the crucifix so designed that the divine Redeemer's body shows no trace of His cruel sufferings; and lastly were he to disdain and reject polyphonic music or singing in parts, even where it conforms to regulations issued by the Holy See.”
— Ven. Pope Pius XII (20 November 1947)

Funny and Inspired sayings of my Grandchildren
published 17 June 2011 by Dr. Ronda Chervin

The budding musician: When the priest was preaching at Pentecost that the laity should transform the world, I whispered to Max, pianist and composer of 15 years – “later I’ll ask you how music fits with transforming the world.” He replied on the way to the car “That’s simple. Music comes from the Holy Spirit.” Asked whether cacophony came from the Holy Spirit, he replied – “that’s not really music.”

The five year old: I casually mentioned something planned for the next day and asked what her father thought about doing that. “I don’t think Papa likes to think about the future at all.”
