the latest tradition

By Diogenes (articles ) | Nov 18, 2006

Jeffrey Tucker apparently caught it first, and posted it on the New Liturgical Movement blog. It's a priceless quote from a student newspaper-- at a Catholic school:

The Gregorian Schola, which sings the music for the Gregorian chant Mass in the Jesuit House Chapel, provides a refreshing break from the traditional Catholic Mass.

So Gregorian chant is a nice break from "tradition"-- a word which, to today's college-age Catholic, brings to mind Marty Haugen and the St. Louis Jesuits.

Confusing? Yes. But the bottom line is that those crazy, radical kids want chant.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    The school is Gonzaga University. I understand the schola is excellent. It's the student newspaper (a commercial publication not controlled by the Jesuits) that got "traditional" wrong. Gonzaga, while not perfect, is a better place than most Jesuit institutions of today.
