Seems like it at my parish. Of course, with the way the folk group bounces between Latin, Spanish, Tagalog, English, and all the others in Malo, Malo; you'd never miss Whoopi.

We've had some seriously tense discussions at my parish over a couple of Archbishop Sample's recent radio shows on the subject of Sacred Music in the Liturgy- especially seeing how often Dan Schutte features in the 8:30 Mass (yes, complete with the hymn he ripped off from My Little Pony).

If I go on Matthew Kelly's extensive research, 7%.

Of course, his definition of a Dynamic Catholic is rather extreme. A Dynamic Catholic to him is one who prays, studies, is generous, and evangelizes. Belief isn't enough for him. It's all about what happens after the Mass is over.....and you'd better be praying more than one hour a week as well.

Matthew Kelly's research is pretty darn close to what ends up in the collection basket- 8% of those in a Roman Catholic Parish give 95% of the budget.

The rest, given something Archbishop Sample said he really hates, are the ones there to listen to the band, and you can tell by their applause.

Apparently you've never read the Doctrine of Infallibility. It's almost as misnamed as the Internal Revenue Service. I call it the Doctrine of Fallibility, since it clearly defines that the Pope is a human being and extremely fallible.

There are three levels of rules, ones that cannot change, ones that change so slowly no human lifetime would notice, and ones that change extremely quickly. It's always been very strange to me that the laity in the pews notices the last, and pays no attention to the other two.
