Catholics and Contemporary Christian Music


#1

I am a “soon-to-be” Catholic convert… I was baptized Pentecostal and have always been non-denominational theology-wise…

I love Hillsong and many other Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) artists… Their songs always seem to lift me up and bring me into a secret place of prayer and meditation with the Trinity and Blessed Mother (although they never mention Her)…

Is it wrong for us as Catholics to listen to such music?


#2

Of course it is not wrong. Some people on this forum have some pretty strange ideas, so if they say this is wrong, don’t listen to them!

I have a lot of CCM music. One of my favorites was back in the 80’s by Amy Grant, “My Father’s Eyes”. Some day hope to have more Catholic music as well.

I also have lots of CCM. There’s some stuff that I switch stations when it comes on, but that’s rare, and I never hear anything that’s actively anti-Catholic. On the contrary, lately I’m hearing stuff talking about the Blood of Christ, etc., that I consider subliminally Catholic.

I love listening to Christian Contemporary Music. I have a bunch of CCM! :smiley: And yes, it is all legally downloaded or ripped from CDs that I personally own. I find CCM to be very uplifting. I also like modern praise and worship music. :slight_smile:
