"A [preacher] who does not love art, poetry, music and nature can be dangerous. Blindness and deafness toward the beautiful are not incidental; they are necessarily reflected in his [preaching]." — BXVI
Thanks. I'm going to need these. Due to work, I'll have to go somewhere in the Dallas Diocese. I'm dreading that, but such is life. *sigh*I hope you've had a safe and blessed Immaculate Conception in Rome.
flambeaux,what's wrong with the Dallas Diocese??
More than can or should be said in a ComBox based on my 15 years of living in the Metroplex. I understand things may get better under the present Ordinary, but I have yet to see any evidence of it.At present, I reside in the Diocese of Fort Worth which, while not much better on average, has a few more islands of sanity than Dallas.But the Latin Rite parish nearest my employer is in the Diocese of Dallas. While it is a lovely building, the liturgy there (as elsewhere in the Diocese of Dallas) leaves much to be desired.
