zDOLni – Episode Three (in English): On Polish Dominican music and the Theology with Julie Bellefeuille
In the third episode of “zDOLni”, Fr. Łukasz is crossing the Atlantic. So far we’ve learned about the roots of the Polish Dominican music and how it continues forming new generations of Poles; but have you known that these liturgical chants adapted into English by the Polish dominican friars serving in the U.S. have also been present in American parishes for over a decade now?
Our guest today is Julie Bellefeuille, a doctoral theology student at the University of Notre Dame. Watch us to hear her conversion story and what role the discovery of liturgy played in it. Learn about her experience as a professional lay campus minister. Discover how the simple, contemplative, polyphonic music introduced by the friars has helped Julie and her students to connect with the heart of the liturgical life of the Church.
To listen to the music Julie is referencing, find Soul of Christ on iTunes, Spotify or YouTube (more information and music scores to download for free on the DLC website):
Make sure you haven’t missed the first episode of the series which explores the very origins of the Polish Dominican renewal of liturgical music!
An encounter. Crisp thoughts. Inspirations. Teatime conversations (coffee would be quite fitting as well), chats about people and ideas that you as the friends of the Dominican Liturgical Center may find intriguing: Where does the “Polish Dominican music” come from?, What kind of visual art should we employ in our churches?, Who would study liturgy?, What does it feel like to be a catechumen in Poland? These and many other topics will be the subject of our new video series, “Zdolni” (a pun too hard to translate). Check our YouTube channel or Facebook page every Thursday to follow your host, Fr. Lukasz Misko, OP, and his guests.
Polish audio version is also available as a podcast on Apple Podcasts (iTunes), Google Podcasts, Spotify and Spreaker:
