View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Bad blood

The Bishop is coming to the parish for a Mass next weekend.

The choir director asked if we would be willing to switch from our regular Sunday Mass so we could sing for the Saturday Mass he will be saying.

Most people said yes.

Some said no. Some gave understandable reasons - previous commitments, for example.

But a couple said no, and made it clear they were refusing because they did not want to sing for the bishop.

Such anger and bitterness. Sad.
