Aw, But “Mary Did You Know?” is such a beautiful song! December 1, 2014

Yeah, well. light heresy And Mary said: 
   “My soul glorifies the Lord 
    and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, 
for he has been mindful 
      of the humble state of his servant. 
   From now on all generations will call me blessed, 
    for the Mighty One has done great things for me— 
      holy is his name. 
His mercy extends to those who fear him, 
      from generation to generation. 
He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; 
      he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. 
He has brought down rulers from their thrones 
      but has lifted up the humble. 
He has filled the hungry with good things 
      but has sent the rich away empty. 
He has helped his servant Israel, 
      remembering to be merciful 
to Abraham and his descendants forever, 
      even as he said to our fathers.” This song is fine as a conversation starter, but as a hymn, or as an expression of Catholic theology? Nyet. Check out Mark Shea’s point-by-point analysis of why this song is “a step forward for Evangelical culture, but a step backward for Catholic culture.”
