The Theology of Sound

As a Catholic musician, I am particularly enamored with two things: theology and sound. I dive passionately into the depths of the Eschaton just as eagerly as I plunge myself headlong into an Eric Clapton album. I find matchless beauty in the Church's doctrines on human sexuality, and I am left breathless by the sheer brilliance of "Blood of Eden" by Peter Gabriel.

Bored with the Gospel

I have a confession to make: as a rabid Catholic (nay, a Cathoholic), I tend to have episodes where I look down my nose in stuffy superiority at things Protestants are doing, as if they were children playing in a sandbox, in desperate need of a knowledgeable Catholic to swoop in and introduce them to REAL spirituality. This, of course, makes me a total jerk.
