  • A Lutheran hymnal in a catholic catalog?
    Autom is a company that provides various religious items including church supplies such as vestments, paraments, and things of that nature. Their target audience is the Roman Catholic Church. I ordered an alb from them earlier this year, and so I am now on their mailing list for their catalog. I was flipping through the catalog recently when I came across this picture, seeing something quite interesting in it:

    Did you see it? Here's a close up in case you don't know what you're looking for:

    Now, I'm sure not all of you know what this is. I do, because I happen to a own a copy of it. The book being held in this picture is also this book:

    This book is Christian Worship: A Lutheran Hymnal. When I saw that I had to look a second, third, and perhaps even a fourth time to make sure that I was indeed seeing what I thought I was seeing. In a catalog geared towards Roman Catholics, they have a picture of an altar boy holding a Lutheran hymnal. I found it quite ironic and highly amusing, hence my sharing this amusement with you.

    For the sake of good literary prudence, the Autom photo may be found online here. The Christian Worship photo may be found online here.

  • Why not, as Marty Haugen - a Lutheran - wrote half the songs in the 'hymnal' used in many NO assembly halls.
