Triune God


The use of music in worship

Music unites people, is creative, helps people feel involved, is evocative and helps express joy and love.

The catholic church encourages the use of music in mass to praise God. 

Quote- Sacred music is to be considered the more holy in proportion as it is more closley connected with the liturgical action, whetherit adds delight to prayer, fosters unity of minds, or confers great solemnity upon the sacred rites - Sacrosanctum Concilium 12

Music in the liturgy

Music is used in Catholic worship to sing parts of the liturgy. Music helps enliven the liturgy and makes people feel more involved in it. 

Plain chant - it has an ethereal tone which helps pray in a contemplative way.

Traditional hymns - Classic hymns of praise to god which have stood the test of time

Contemporary worship - they take on modern folk or popular music forms

Psalms - pieces of poetry from the book of psalms, often set to music and sung as part of worship.

Acclimations used in the mass

Gloria - a hymn to praise gods glory and goodness

Alleluia - a hymn of joy and triumph that praises God and announce the presence of Christ

Sanctus - a hymn to praise Gods holiness

Mtstery of faith - an acknowledgement that Christs life, death and ressurection has been made present throught the consecration.

The triune God explained in the bible

Deuteronomy 6:4 - This stresses that there is only one God, but we also know he is three persons still being one God

Quote- Hear, O Israel: The Lord is our God, the Lord alone

Matthew 3:16-17 - This is jesus' baptism where God reveals himself as the trinity. For Christians, it shows there really are three persons who all coexist at the same time. The Holy Spirit is represented as a dove, the father is the voice from heaven, and Jesus is the son

Galatians 4:6 - This explains the relationship between the trinity an a christian.

Quote- and because ypu are children, God has sent the spirit of his son into our hearts, crying, 'Abba! Father!'
