  1. Yes. I studied it extensively in a MA music history class. I can read Gregorian chant in its original notation. I have listened to multiple Medieval and Renaissance masses. I have performed in a number of masses such as Mozart, Britten, etc.
  2. Thanks for your contribution. I have heard some say that Poland is the most Catholic of all countries, but what do I know? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish_National_Catholic_Church
  3. Thanks. I grew up in New Mexico where we visited many cathedrals and chapels from the time the area was controlled by Spain. Even the most humble adobe building had beautiful interiors. Same with my mission in Central America. I have good friends who are not at all happy with the changes that have been made. One I hope our church never does is replace the organ/keyboard with a "Praise Band."
  4. I truly do not understand how saying and singing Mass in Latin is more spiritual or aesthetically more pleasing. I understand the historical objections. From what I have read on the internet, using Latin appears to be optional.......no disrespect intended.
  5. It all depends on one’s point of view, of course. LDS are Christians too. Why should we be obligated to observe other Christians’ celebrations? And they are, of course. Depends on one’s point of view, of course. From my point of view, probably not. Try it. You might like it. Yes. One of my MA classes in music history included extensive study of Gregorian chant and the masterful anonymous and known-composers of Medieval and Renaissance Catholic liturgy and sacred music. I can read Gregorian chant in its original notation. We also attended high mass in a Cister
  6. I have also performed as a musician in many Christian services and celebrations as well as LDS.
  7. I often attend Christmas Eve mass at the local Polish Catholic Church in honor of my grandfather Piotr. Very beautiful, but not fundamentally different or more spiritual than our Christmas sacrament meeting.
  8. Well, for starters, the First Vision when God the Father and Jesus once again came to man on the earth proving the Resurrection of Christ, the miraculous coming forth of the Second Witness of Christ (the Book of Mormon), the great events of the Restoration of the priesthood, ordinances, gospel, and temple, the establishment of the Kingdom of God on earth, and the semi-annual published words of living prophets and Apostles of Jesus Christ for our time... all consequential events in the history of Christianity and in preparation for the Second Coming of the Lord. What Christian would not welc
  9. Christians should celebrate the First Vision, the coming forth of the Second Witness of Christ (the Book of Mormon), the great events of the Restoration of the priesthood, gospel, and temple, and the semi-annual published words of living prophets and Apostles of Jesus Christ. What Christians would not desire more acts and words of our Lord Jesus Christ?
  10. Should they? Should other Christians participate in LDS celebrations?
  11. How can you possibly feel guilty for the actions of a few misguided people regardless their color?
  12. Well, that was next up on the agenda but they never got to it. Seriously,I used to get nauseous from the mix of perfumes, hair spray, etc., when I went into the RS room after Church to find Sister Gui.
  13. What? You doubt the veracity of the Deserette Newds?
