016-Time for Serious Levity Five

“How Can I Keep from Singing” arranged and sung by John Foley, SJ and John Kavanaugh, SJ (Ways to Get Through album, 1972) seems like the perfect song to accompany us into celebration of the Triduum – Mass of the Lord’s Supper, Holy Thursday; Good Friday; Easter Vigil; Easter Sunday and Easter Vespers. May this song of hope and trust, founded in […]

Our pastor at the Church of the Gesu, John P. Schlegel, SJ, concelebrated at Mass with Pope Francis Thursday morning, March 26, 2015.

Here’s what I propose: click, then  listen, attend, recognize, & record your responses. Suffice it to say that I’ve been a big fan of the The Who since I was in high school. I modeled some of my guitar playing after Pete Townsend. I crafted most of my songs, even the quiet ones (!), to express […]

Well, maybe this isn’t levity, but it’s serious and perhaps uplifting. Here’s what I propose: click, then  listen, attend, recognize, & record your responses.

014b-Time for Serious Levity Trois-point.5

  1. An old cowboy went riding out one dark and windy day / Upon a ridge he rested as he went along his way.    A stormy day signifies the inner turmoil of this old cowboy. He came to a place where he could get some perspective on his life. It seems much like […]

014-Time for Serious Levity Trois

Here’s my latest favorite old song… “Ghost Riders in the Sky” done by Johnny Cash. This video even has the lyrics! If you think you know this song from your youth, then it’s time to re-listen. It’s kind of like preparing for Triduum. “Been there. Done that.” Yet with an attitude of curiosity, perhaps Triduum and GRITS (!!!) […]
