"As a parent myself it seems to me young people are being brought up immersed in the negative messages of modern music via MTV, a lot of which is demeaning.
They need the transformative power of sacred music to balance that,
but instead they are getting banal, happy-clappy stuff at Mass. Sacred
music can lift young people up and help them embrace more noble ideas,
yet it is not sung in many Catholic churches in Scotland."
