Very BEAUTIFUL.

We attended Roman Catholic services a couple of weeks ago at the Arch Diocese in Austin. The atomosphere, the choir and the pipe organ were so AWESOME that I was in tears and quivering. We were hoping that they had produced a CD of their music, but alas, no.

As an ex-Catholic, Southern Baptist, the array of sights, sounds, smells and even the liturgy (sometimes) is something I miss every once in a while, particularlly the image of the bruised, beaten and bloodied Christ on the crucifix. Although most protestant denominations hold that Christ is no longer on the cross, and I agree, the Catholic crucifix is an excellent reminder of what Christ did for us and of what we deserve because of our own sin, were it not for Him.
SON-cerely,

Truly very beautiful, though I couldn't understand a word of it. Jim

Listen to music like this on My library of Ave Maria.

Remember the music is in Latin.

You can start your own library. And it is free :!: :D

Then think of the music you will have in heaven.
God Bless.

A problem easily solved! http://www.archive.org/details/apractic ... 00adlegoog

Or, there's the cheater's way. Here's a translation:

"O great mystery,and wonderful sacrament,
that animals should see the new-born Lord,
lying in a manger! Blessed is the Virgin whose womb
was worthy to bear
Christ the Lord. Alleluia!"
