English On Rock Music in the Liturgy
Oct 16, 2004
At the Eighth International Church Music Congress in Rome in 1986, for example, Ratzinger blasted rock music.

(The Tablet, 18 September 2004) At the Eighth International Church Music Congress in Rome in 1986, for example, Ratzinger blasted rock music as a “vehicle of anti-religion”. He said rock and roll is a secular variant of an age-old ecstatic religion, in which man “lowers the barriers of individuality and personality” to “liberate himself from the burden of consciousness”. Rock is thus “the complete antithesis of Christian faith in the redemption”.
