I’m a firm believer in David Scott’s ethos of "I am the worst liturgical abuse at any Mass," a conviction also expressed by my husband in his books, but this note from commentor Toni was too, er..good to resist. If by "good" you mean "makes you want to bang your head against a wall."

Text after the jump:

I’ve read many, many posts on your blog griping about liturgical music.
I always brushed them off because frankly, I thought I had heard it all

This past weekend, my husband and I attended a retreat in Scranton, PA.
We attended Mass as part of the retreat on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
There was another group in the building that participated at Mass with our

group.That group provided the music.

On Friday evening we began with a medley of hits, all on piano. One was
"What A Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong. It was an instrumental, so
I could almost stomach it. But the "meditation" song after communion for
each Mass was "Think of Me" from Phantom of the Opera.

I can now say I’ve heard it all.
