Gaudete Sunday

A priest from my diocese has a blog where he posts his Sunday homilies.

It’s a pretty cool idea. I particularly enjoy it since as a musician, sometimes I miss some parts of Mass due to my mind wandering about what’s going to be sung next, what key I have to remember to play it in, what the kids in the choir are doing right now and whether I should intervene before it gets too “out of hand,” and things like that–not to mention all the other stuff that everyone’s mind wanders about.

Just as we are encouraged to prepare ourselves for Mass, including reading & meditating on the readings of the day, so it can be wise for someone who is in a position to be distracted a bit during the homily to avail herself of this resource. It’s not the same homily I’d be hearing, but trust me–this priest has plenty of good points to think and pray about.

I encourage you to visit his blog and read the homily for tomorrow. The theme: “Rejoice in the Lord always!”
