Music Notes

A new school year begins a new chapter in the life of every student. Albert Einstein reportedly said, "Once you stop learning, you start dying." I therefore propose that we can all start fresh this month and urge you to consider how you might begin a new chapter in your life here at the Cathedral this fall.

All of the baptized are called to work toward the transformation of the world. (Co-Workers in the Vineyard of the Lord, p .8)

As sharers in the role of Christ as priest, prophet, and king, the laity have their work cut out for them in the life and activity of the Church. Their activity is so necessary within the Church communities that without it the apostolate of the pastors is often unable to achieve its full effectiveness. In the manner of the men and women who helped Paul in spreading the Gospel (cf. Acts 18:18, 26; Rom. 16:3) the laity with the right apostolic attitude supply what is lacking to their brethren and refresh the spirit of pastors and of the rest of the faithful (cf. 1 Cor. 16:17-18). Strengthened by active participation in the liturgical life of their com- munity, they are eager to do their share of the apostolic works of that community. They bring to the Church people who per- haps are far removed from it, earnestly cooperate in presenting the word of God especially by means of catechetical instruction, and offer their special skills to make the care of souls and the administration of the temporalities of the Church more efficient and effective. (Decree on The Apostolate Of The Laity, Apostolicam Actuositatem, #10)

Is there a ministry at the Cathedral where the Holy Spirit is leading you to offer your special skills? The liturgical life of the parish needs many different helpers to strengthen the community. While I would love to welcome everyone into music ministry, just as a body is made up of many parts, musicians need the service of the other ministers in order to have a strong community.

Bono tells us, "Music can change the world because it can change people." How and where are you being called to transform the world? What new chapter will you start this school year?
