Want to be a priest and love southern gospel music problem or no problem?

I’m no authority but I doubt the Church would consider it a problem. You could even love Jewish cantorial music. OTOH, if you loved music with a Satanic message, that would surely be a problem.


#3

Why would that be a problem? I have CDs from a heavy metal band whose keyboardist is a Catholic priest. :p. I doubt southern gospel would present a problem. :slight_smile:

No, not a problem.

But…there was a time when music composed by non-Catholics was forbidden from being performed during Mass.

I don’t think he meant during Mass but rather in his leisure time, we all listen to Music we like during our leisure time, while driving, mine is Gregorian Chant.


#6

There’s no problem with an interest in that kind of music.

I just advise Catholics to be careful about supporting Protestant groups that run around Catholic countries trying to convert everyone .

Leisure time only. Songs like this

yeah no issue there. It may not be good for the Mass but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t become a priest.
