Sunday Snippets


It’s Sunday Snippets time again over at RAnn’s This, That & The Other Thing.

The question of the week is: What is your favorite hymn that you hear/sing at Mass?

And to that I reply, Really? You’re going to make me pick ONE? I’m a musician! How can I do that?

The best I can do is break it down by category:

Among the traditional hymns, two leap to mind immediately: All Creatures of Our God And King and I Know That My Redeemer Lives.

Among the contemporary genre, I have a billion favorites, but two of my top are Rory Cooney’s We Will Serve the Lord and Bernadette Farrell’s sublime version of Ps. 139: “O God, You Search Me” (this video has our choir doing a bit of it in the background).

Among the P&W genre, I’d probably say “Sanctuary.”

As for posts, this week I’ll just share two:

The Things That Make Us Grow, which is actually a faith-topic post, and An Epic, Blog-Worthy Doctor Visit, which isn’t, except that it WAS one of the things that makes me grow!

    I was at a children’s mass and the congregation sang a song at communion. I think it was only about 4 lines which were repeated. I thought it was beautiful. I know it had “Sanctuary” in it. Is that the song you mentioned? I loved it. Other than that, Jim and I have kept a list of the songs we want at our funerals. Right now we’re up to about 20 songs a piece. Maybe more.
