“There are no hymns, in this sense, till the fourth century; they were not admitted to the Roman office till the twelfth. No Eastern rite to this day knows this kind of hymn. Indeed, in our Roman rite we still have the archaic offices of the last days of Holy Week and of the Easter octave, which—just because they are archaic—have no hymns.”
— Adrian Fortescue (25 March 1916)

Brilliant Idea for A Parish Fundraiser
published 13 September 2015 by Fr. David Friel

HIS JUST IN from the Catholic Memes page on Facebook. Those in search of a promising parish fundraiser might take their lead from a Protestant congregation that has crafted an inventive new feature of their music program.

(N.B. Please understand that this post—and I presume this congregation’s fundraiser—are meant to be lighthearted.)
