A Difficult Choice

Here’s a difficult choice for Catholics: Mary or the Eucharist. Be consoled we never have to give up one or the other. This is just a playful polling exercise.

Two more NPM top-25 selections. Number 10 Ave Maria (fix your favorite setting in your mind–the pollsters didn’[t offer one) and number 22 “One Bread, One Body.”

A quote from The Didache, on which Foley based the third verse of his Communion song:

We thank Thee, our Father, for the life and knowledge which Thou madest known to us through Jesus Thy Servant; to Thee be the glory for ever. Even as this broken bread was scattered over the hills, and was gathered together and became one, so let Thy Church be gathered together from the ends of the earth into Thy kingdom; for Thine is the glory and the power through Jesus Christ for ever.

For an alternative popular setting of the Ave Maria, my guitar arrangement of the Vavilov, sung by the inimitable Katherine Ament.
