“Peace, peace, peace on earth; peace to God’s people, all people on earth.”
Is this “tacit” approval really “imaginary” approval?
It’s no secret. Anyone who’s been in Church music realizes what happens in 99% of Catholic parishes.

This year one, a seminarian from our parish is being ordained. He requested that we sing the Propers for his first Mass.
The practical end of formal approval.
How modernism effects music and babies. And how UNICEF is like the Catholic Church.

“Tacit approval” alone isn’t getting the job done. It is abdicating authority to composers and publishers, pastors and liturgists.
The current GIRM never mentions “tacit” approval.
