Just a note from Alix*, our Music Director.
A lot of religious art is kitsch. It doesn't mean it is bad or can't lead to devotion. Even John of the Cross says God sometimes uses humbler images to detach us from a too natural preference or vain attachment to what we consider fine art.
Christmas decorations are generally considered kitsch. It doesn't mean it is artless or tacky. Not at all.
So - if I have ever referred to something you like as kitsch - I wasn't suggesting it is worthless or tacky or of no value. After all, one man's kitsch is another man's art.
Many of us online believe we are arbiters of taste - we are not.
It's good for donations too.
