"In accord with no. 55 of the instruction of the Congregation of Rites on music in the liturgy (March 5, 1967), the Conference of Bishops has determined that vernacular texts set to music composed in earlier periods may be used in liturgical services even though they may not conform in all details with the legitimately approved versions of liturgical texts (November, 1967). This decision authorizes the use of choral and other music in English when the older text is not precisely the same as the official version."

Brandt Family 2015 UR FAMILY BIBLE HAS SEEN A few updates lately with three sons being confirmed, then another son making his first Holy Communion a week later. It is amazing to reflect on how time has flown! It seems not so long ago we brought each one to be baptized.

It is amazing how a family can work together to grow new people. It is amazing that something so fundamental can be controversial, but then again, that’s another reason we know that marriage and the family is important.

CanaVox is a refreshing oasis providing a plan of readings for a discussion group. I don’t know if I’ll get to try out the nineteen sessions properly, but reading pieces here and there has been rewarding and reassuring. Supporting families is worthwhile.
