Attending Mass on vacation enhances appreciation for Cathedral Parish music Print
Letters to the editor

To the editor:

During a recent vacation, which included attending Mass at a variety of new (to me) Wisconsin Catholic parishes, boy, am I happy to be back at Madison’s Cathedral Parish, where the Mass is the Mass, the music is appropriately solemn and dignified, and the lyrics don’t center on us and on God’s good fortune that we showed up, but on a humble, grateful, and reverent attitude towards God.

Thanks to Madison’s Bishop Robert Morlino, thanks to Abbot Marcel Rooney, and thanks to Dr. Patrick Gorman for making good liturgical music available in Madison!

I have renewed my appreciation for the Catholic bishops’ efforts to guide music of the Mass. Thank you, bishops, and forge on! Your flock is very grateful for your efforts.

Syte Reitz, Madison
