We have a score to settle! On this episode, with a little help from our snarky little friend Joey the GIRM, we compare the wording of the so-called "Study Edition" of the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (courtesy of the Diocese of Pittsburgh Music Office) with the REAL GIRM (courtesy of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops).
We begin our show with two very important days in this family man's life: my daughter's wedding, and my wife's birthday!

iSNARK! 173

Listen below, or download here. (1:11:20/65.3 MB)

OOPS! I somehow managed to create the longest podcast episode in Christus Vincit/iSNARK! history, surpassing the 2007 Easter special by just about two minutes! That is basically because our What Did We Sing Today still came out longer than normal, and I even dropped several pieces I recorded! Oh well, try to enjoy anyways!
Anyhoo, today we talk about my new pet project, influenced by the book pictured at left, and A Living WHAT?!, a ranting on how one publisher killed a good, solid, Catholic classic! 
Feasts for the Week:  July 4-17. 
Commercials (the three usuals, scattered)
Don't Do This at Church (three, scattered)

What Did We Sing Today: covering The Body and Blood of Christ, First Communion, Sacred Heart (Extraordinary Form), and the Fourteenth Sunday of Ordinary Time.
