Certainly, the Second Vatican Council wished to promote greater active participation [and] fine initiatives were taken along these lines. However we cannot close our eyes to the disaster, the devastation and the schism that the modern promoters of a living liturgy caused by remodeling the Church’s liturgy according to their ideas. They forgot that the liturgical act is not just a PRAYER, but also and above all a MYSTERY in which something is accomplished for us that we cannot fully understand but that we must accept and receive in faith, love, obedience and adoring silence.

The Most Sensitive Musical Instrument
published 6 July 2017 by Andrew Leung

ERE IS A VIDEO of Arvo Pärt’s commencement speech at St. Vladimir’s Seminary in 2014. This video shows how the composer is deeply rooted in the faith. He believes that one must prepare the soul before producing good music and the music will reflect how well one’s soul is. Human soul is the most sensitive musical instrument. This is definitely a video worth watching and reflecting on.
