Nor does a big Bach fugue, = or a Widor symphony. But I find God in that music, too.=20   I don't use "You Raise Me Up" during Mass. I have used it after the = service as a quieter exit piece from a funeral where it was requested. I = am too conservative to allow such music during Mass.=20   But who else but Jesus could help us walk on stormy seas, as He did, who = else could lift us upon his shoulder and give us strength. (The story of = the feet in the sand?) Who else but Him do we seek in the silence and = then we feel His presence next to us.=20   I don't know the Ann Murray piece you mention. I do know that "You Raise = Me Up" can be considered sappy. But I do like it and I do believe God is = present in that song.=20   Thank you though for your words and concern for the liturgy.=20   May God bless your day.   Tina Hemphill-St. Joan of Arc, Nashotah, Wisconsin   P.S. and as for "Leaving on a Jet Plane" for Ascension; I will never = use "A Touching Place" found in the Ritual Song Hymnal.

There is no mention = what so ever of God or anything remotely religious. Looking at the = lyrics the song bears much in resemblance (and sentiment) as the old Ann = Murray song "You Needed Me".
