Top 10 Reasons Liberals, Progressives, and Heretics Should Sing Gregorian Chant

1. It was big in the 90s.
2. Julian of Norwich, Hildegard of Bingen, Joan of Arc, Teresa of Avilla, and every other awesome feminine mystic you like to reference (but never actually have read) prayed in Latin Chant every single day.
3. It makes Elton John sound even weirder.
4. It was big in the 70s (the 1070s, the 1170s, the 1270s, the 1370s…).
5. It’s in a foreign language. That means its exotic and awesome, right?
6. Vatican II said so.
7. Why should conservatives have all the fun?
8. You can print it in your worship aid for free (legally).
9. Less time picking out songs every week means more time for practicing the Conga Drums.
10. Bowties are awesome!

  1. Geez! This seems to bee so passive aggressive. Rather than wasting time on such issues, let us be the Church based on justice that Jesus meant. Mary said: “the rich He has sent empty away.” The first liberal in the Church and I love it!

  2. It might be passive aggressive if it showed up on NLM or Fr. Z. But as a chant-loving heretic myself, I thought it was more, you know…. funny.
