Last week was Pizza Sunday at my parish, and I ended up sitting with the priest whom I mentioned a while back as the one who thought everything was a disaster in the past but now everything is better. I imagine he and I would disagree on almost everything, except for two things: first, against all odds, he likes chant, when I would have thought he would have been leading the charge to stop me from singing it; and second, he has great devotion to Mary. It was he who asked if I could sing Arcadelt's Ave Maria at a future Mass. He and I probably will always disagree on virtually everything, yet I also believe a man who is devoted to our Blessed Mother can't be all bad. I'll learn the piece.
