True or False?: In the liturgy it is not only the Father who blesses us, but we who bless the Father.What do you think? Vote in the poll in the sidebar.
Here are the results from the previous poll:
- Proper song and music in the liturgy, although acting as signs in regard to liturgical action, are not elements that promote the sanctification of the faithful.
- True: 3 (10%)
- False: 26 (90%)
- FALSE, cf. CCC no. 1157: Song and music fulfill their function as signs in a manner all the more significant when they are "more closely connected . . . with the liturgical action" (SC 112 § 3), according to three principal criteria: beauty expressive of prayer, the unanimous participation of the assembly at the designated moments, and the solemn character of the celebration. In this way they participate in the purpose of the liturgical words and actions: the glory of God and the sanctification of the faithful (Cf. SC 112) . . .
St. Cecilia, patron saint of musicians .... pray for us!
