"Upon the road, René was always occupied with God. His words and the discourses he held were all expressive of submission to the commands of Divine Providence, and showed a willing acceptance of the death which God was sending him. He gave himself to God as a sacrifice, to be reduced to ashes by the fires of the Iroquois, which that good Father's hand would kindle. He sought the means to bless Him in all things and everywhere. Covered with wounds as he himself was, Goupil dressed the wounds of other persons, of the enemies who had received some blows in the fight as well as those of the prisoners. He opened the vein for a sick Iroquois. And he did it all with as much charity as if he had done it to persons who were his best friends."
— St. Isaac Jogues (writing in 1643)

Who Says Young People Can’t Sing Traditional Sacred Music?
published 23 April 2016 by Andrew Leung

AVE YOU HEARD the following statements? “Young people can’t sing traditional music”, or “they can’t pray with sacred music”, or “the only way to bring them closer to God is to meet them where they are at and give them their kind of music”. You might have heard these statements from Lifeteen music leaders, youth ministers, parents or even priests. They are all wrong!

These two groups of high schoolers are going to prove them wrong. They are going to prove that they can sing and pray with traditional sacred music. They are going to tell you how much they appreciate the Church’s music and arts. The New York Pueri Cantores high school choir festival is happening right now in New York City. Here is a video from yesterday recorded in St. Malachy’s Roman Catholic Church, also known as the The Actor’s Chapel.

If that’s not enough proof, see what this group of 160 students, who traveled to Rome from California, have to say.



Here are two more videos of the Mater Dei Choir's trip to Rome. Remember this: never look down on our young brothers and sisters!
