OUR LADY OF MOUNT CARMEL SCHOOL NEWS

 

 Recollections from China -  From Dr. Carl Bolleia

 

Dear Friends,

From the last week of August through the first week of September, I performed several concerts in China and engaged in educational outreach and teaching with students in Beijing and in a rural village in Hebei Province.  I was invited and sponsored by Si-Yo Music Society Foundation, a musical foundation with a mission to “bridge Asia and the West with Classical Music”.  My experience revealed to me how Chinese society appreciates and studies classical music of Western Civilization.  The adoption of Western Classical Music in China was evident by not just the quantity of children studying Western Music, but of the heartfelt appreciation and sincerity that the Chinese students, their families and teachers have for it.

This tradition of Western Classical Music finds its origins in Gregorian Chant, the liturgical music of our Catholic faith.  This is the music that the Second Vatican Council said has “pride of place” in our worship.  It is from Gregorian Chant that the principles and practices such as musical narrative, melody, harmony, polyphony, and form developed.  It is in the Church that this tradition of 1,200+ years found its origins.  It includes composers as genius, prolific and diverse as Dufay, Josquin, Palestrina, Monteverdi, J.S. Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann, Brahms, Liszt, Wagner, Stravinsky, Schoenberg, Debussy, Ravel and Messiaen, to name just a few.  This music is filled with meaning, worth and value, which is why I believe there has been such an embrace of Western Music in Asia.  A pedagogue I met in China, who had studied at Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, relayed to me that approximately 56,000 children from 27 towns had signed up for just one classical piano festival.  In the music of Western Civilization, one ultimately encounters beauty that transcends cultures.

Our children receive this encounter with beauty at OLMC School.  Classical Music of Western Civilization permeates throughout the academic, artistic, and liturgical life of our students.  It is a joy for me to be able to see this take place at our school and I am proud that this education is available in our own backyard.  Returning from China, I am even more grateful that here at OLMC we are offering a curriculum that is “Distinctly Classical”.  This is especially true after having witnessed the intense hunger for our western, musical and educational tradition 7,000 miles away, in the most populated country in the world.

Warmly,

Dr. Carl Patrick Bolleia

Director of Music

ON BEING A LECTOR
The essential element alive in a lector is willingness:  being a willing instrument of God who stands up to proclaim his Good News. From the beginning of the Old Testament to the Letters of Saint Paul, the lector helps us call to mind the fact that God, who reveals himself throughout history, is alive and active in our day.

Walking to the ambo and addressing the congregation might seem anxiety-inducing at first, but this passes with prayer and practice. Learning what to do and when is straightforward, and “basic training” of the ins and outs will be given.

As with every other privilege in life, there also comes responsibility: a responsibility to “be there” at scheduled Masses, a responsibility to quietly and prayerfully take the words of the reading into your heart prior to proclaiming them.

Being a lector is both simple and profound. It all begins with willingness.  Please let us know if you are willing.  Contact:  rfoegen@optimum.net

 

 

 

Dear Friends,

 

Part II – there is some repetition from last weekend here, but I have one more point to make!

 

When I am not either trusting or following Jesus, I am necessarily trusting or following something or someone else. What (or whom) do you trust to provide for you? What do you think will keep you (and yours) safe? What will make you happy? If the ultimate answer to these questions is not Jesus, we will be forever prone to frustration, fear, depression, anxiety, and many other ailments besides. When we trust Jesus, however, peace is ours.

 

These things that we trust to keep us safe or bring us happiness are what we might call counterfeit gods, and they place demands on us: if we think being more beautiful will bring us happiness, then we spend more and more time and energy on our appearances; if we think that having more money will make us more secure, then we do what we need to do to acquire wealth.

 

This is a kind of worship. We follow the dictates of counterfeit gods: trusting they will give us what we most deeply desire – having put them in God’s rightful place – we do whatever it takes to keep them happy!


The liturgy, again, calls us back to rightful worship of God – we are to entrust ourselves whole and entire to him. One of the ways we see that is in the Universal Prayer (sometimes called the Prayer of the Faithful) of the Mass. Contemplate the priest’s introduction for those prayers: “To God the Father Almighty, dear brothers and sisters, may every prayer of our heart be directed…”

 

The reality is that every person prays. When asked, even atheists report that they pray! The real question is to whom or what are those prayers directed? On whom or what do we rely in order to achieve desired results? Who or what do we beg to give us peace, joy, security, safety, and the rest?

 

To put trust in – to pray to – anything or anyone other than God for our ultimate wellbeing is a pursuit that leads only to exhaustion, frustration, or something of the sort. Entrusting ourselves to God in prayer, on the contrary, yields only peace, love, joy, and the rest.

 

So, my friends, to God the Father Almighty may every prayer of our heart be directed!

 

Christ’s Peace,

Father Daniel
