Music ministers are trailblazers leading lay people to their proper role in the church following the Second Vatican Council, a leading theologian told a gathering of pastoral musicians in Philadelphia July 8.
Few Catholics realize the “sacramental significance” of the entire congregation of worshippers giving themselves to God in a collective song of praise, said Dominican Father Paul J. Philibert, one of the main speakers at the Eastern Regional Convention of the National Association of Pastoral Musicians.
Father Philibert described music ministers as “key players for the emerging
new church in the age of baptismal empowerment”.
I don’t know about you folks, but I get nervous when theologians start using language
borrowed from radical feminists.
Here’s an antidote to this madness.
