Organ Arrangements

As most of you know, my dad is our parish music director and the director of the Schola Cantorum. Yesterday, Father, and my dad decided to change around our organ arrangement. Before it was jetting out into the front of the church where "everyone could see the performer" and now, with it up in the choir section on the side, it gives a much more respectful feeling to the church at whole. You know what is the most important thing when you walk into the sanctuary.

Your father sounds like a brilliant man.

Clever title, Grasshopper.

I believe the real reason for the new arrangement has to do with your father being unable to keep a straight face when I am singing, or when I give him one of those side-long glances during the liturgy when something goes awry.

I have seen Pope Benedict XVI give a similar glance to Msgr. Ganswein during liturgies that had been directed by the former papal MC, Abp. Piero Marini. The expression was a blend of frustration, bemusement, disappointment, and resignation. Think of Oliver Hardy looking directly at the camera after something silly by Stan Laurel.

There are times when I believe that your father reads my mind during the Mass. It is to your father's credit [his experience, awareness, consistency, and reverence] that the holy liturgies here go so well, so smoothly. He is always prepared, and the Schola has been a beautiful addition and support to the offering of Holy Mass.

You have also been a great help to the liturgies, and your presence and participation as server/MC and that of your brother and of Jason have added tremendous dignity and eliminated many errors and distractions from our divine worship. This is an essential part of the reverent offering of the sacrifice of the Holy Eucharist. My gratitude for your service knows no bounds. Deo gratias!

I sense a reference to my going through puberty in the middle of the responsorial psalm last Sunday... In the words of Peter Brady, "when it's time to change, you've got to re-ar-RAAAAANGE!!"
