Twice in the past year in our parish, the music director has included the "hymn" In This House written by Marylu Hill. The lyrics seem extremely problematic to me because of the line 'welcomed by God, our father and mother' in the chorus.
I complained to out pastor about it in June and it disappeared for our 'extra' binder of hymns, only to reappear yesterday.
I might note that this extra binder of hymns are songs that are far from traditional although classified as 'contemporary' hymns, includes the heretical nugget Ashes (with the horrid line 'we arise again from ashes to create ourselves anew' )
So, am I off-base in my thinking that In This House has no place being sung anywhere near a Catholic church? I am preparing a letter to my pastor and will follow up with the bishop if need be.
