We are not drawn to God by iron chains, like bulls and wild oxen. We are drawn by enticements, sweet attractions, and holy inspirations. – St. Francis de Sales
Ah, but what qualifies as “enticements, sweet attractions, and holy inspirations? That seems to vary from person to person. I might find a particular style of music inspiring, but another person might consider it noise and a distraction. I might think a particular piece of religious art is saccharine, another person might find it evocative. I might think a particular priest’s preaching nourishing and thought provoking, another person might find it dull.
That’s one of the reasons why I like to have different types of Masses each weekend to give people a choice.
