    What a wonderful reflection! Thank you so much for sharing, Maria.

    ‘Maestro Gorbik, in harmony with the Holy Fathers, teaches that ego in a church choir impedes the ascent of the whole choir, even the whole of the faithful gathered in service, into the heights of heaven.

    However, we often naively fall into the misconception that the opposite of ego is weakness and mediocrity. We think that it sounds pious to sing weakly and poorly. Singing we’d never want to display for a local radio station producer is sufficient to present before the Source of our life, simply because it sounds “humble.”’

    A thousand times ‘Amen!’ Thank you for this.
