The USCCB List for the Resignation and Election of the Pope

The USCCB has put out a document of music resources for the resignation and election of the Pope. There's a big drum roll here but once you get to the resources you get...a bunch of song/hymns, stuff you encounter in most mainline parishes every week. As Daniel Page summarizes: "The list of music in this document is profoundly disappointing and unworthy of the sacred liturgy."

I really do wish that the USCCB would get with the times and stop pretending to ignore the radical changes that have been pushed by Benedict XVI. History will come around. The USCCB can lead or follow.
