one step forward, two steps back

Since there is no time to write a multi-tome volume set on the nature and history of anti-catholicism and how it hurts both Christian theology and Christianity in general I will share a pithy saying I heard at seminary: "Gentlemen, it is not Word and Sacrament ministry, but Word and Music ministry."

Does this not summarize well why and how, in part, the pastoral ministry is and will always be an uphill climb?
