You Like Us!

We got quite a few kudos from the fine parishioners of Immaculate Conception after our Mass today, as many as we've gotten after any Mass. As previously mentioned, this was the first time we were invited there, and if Fr. Philip George's words to us at the end of Mass are any indication, it won't be the last. We thank Kathy's protege and 9:30 AM choir director Andrea Santos for her role in bringing us, and wish her choir nothing but the best.

Many parishioners were saying they hadn't heard our kind of music before, or in many years. To them I reply, "It is our pleasure," and add this is the purpose of Regina Pacis Cantorum.

We're not out to "take over" any Masses or parishes.
We're not out to agitate that the Extraordinary Form is the only way to celebrate Mass.
We're not out to impose Latin on the Novus Ordo.
We're all about exposing Catholics to the timeless treasury of polyphony and chant, to let them know it still exists. Not everyone will want to hear it, but it shouldn't be because they never experienced it.

(BTW, Sally Field never said, "You like me, you really like me!" at the Oscars. She said, "... I can't deny the fact that you like me, right now, you like me!")
