“Today the Church has made a big mistake, turning the clock back 500 years with guitars and popular songs. I don't like it at all. Gregorian Chant is a vital and important tradition of the Church and to waste this—by having guys mix religious words with profane, Western songs—is hugely grave, hugely grave.”
— Maestro Ennio Morricone (10 Sept 2009)

Video • The Altar Server “Must See”
published 25 February 2016 by Andrew Leung

NE OF MY DUTIES as a seminarian is to serve Masses at the parish. Altar serving is such an important and meaningful liturgical ministry. I have been doing it for fifteen years now and it helps me a lot in my spiritual growth. This video that I am sharing today was published in 2013, but I just saw it for the first time. I agree with everything he says and I hope you do too.

I hope you enjoy this video. While this video gives us a lot of insights about altar serving, it also helps us to reflect on our relationships with God. Here are some questions we can ask ourselves:

- Am I acting reverently and actively participating in my role at Mass?

- Do I dress up appropriately and worthily when I attend Mass?

- Do I pray everyday? Or do I only show up to Mass on Sundays?
