“Our Christian people regard with great joy everything that contributes to the splendor of the ceremonies. Jesus—who was poor in His private life—received ointment on His feet. See Thomas Aquinas (Prima Secundae, q. 102, art. 5, ad 10) and the holy Curé of Ars. The Church has always loved beautiful churches, and so forth. We must preserve our sacred patrimony and make sure sacred objects do not become secular possessions.”
— Abbot & Council Father denouncing “noble simplicity” during Vatican II

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.
