“If he converses with the learned and judicious, he delights in their talent—if with the ignorant and foolish, he enjoys their stupidity. He is not even offended by professional jesters.

— Erasmus on St. Thomas More (England's 1st lay Chancellor)

Thoughtful Article On Hymns By Fr. Mark Woodruff
published 2 April 2013 by Guest Author

It was first published in The Messenger of the Catholic League – Anglicans and Catholics in Communion: Patrimony, Unity, Mission in the April – August 2010 edition. The subject is the patrimony of the Ordinariate, concerning the place of hymns in relation to the Roman rite.

We have obtained permission to share this article with others. While we do not necessarily agree with everything Fr. Woodruff has written (which should come as no surprise, considering our strong opinions!), we feel that it is certainly worth reading, and present it here for thoughtful consideration by our readers:
