Musical Guidelines for School Masses

Our Catholic school system is currently developing liturgical guidelines for school Masses.  Here is what I would suggest as guidelines for the use of music at these Masses.

    Excellent! Let’s hope they listen between now and September for the opening of term Mass. One thing I noted was that Sacrosanctum Concilium #14 actually says: “Mother Church earnestly desires that all the faithful should be led to that **fully conscious, and active participation** in liturgical celebrations…” [emphasis mine] (as per Vatican.va website). Now I know some will argue that it’s just semantics, but if you think about it “full, active, conscious participation” — which has been bandied about for decades — isn’t really the same thing as “fully conscious, active participation.” Just saying.
