THE PADRE'S PORTION 

Dear Brothers and Sisters: When you go to Mass, do ever feel like the Mass is the “same old, same old” routine? Do you feel like the ‘script’ of the Mass never changes? Well, this thinking might add to a person’s view that ‘Mass is boring’. Well, let me tell you that each Mass had built into it a unique and lovely message. No two Masses have the same script. One area that might become familiar to you is the Canon (the Consecration and Communion part of the Mass. This is partly due to the fact that there are only four Eucharistic Prayers; and three of them get used most of the time. Looking at the parts of the Mass, there are unique “Propers” to each Mass. These parts are the Introit, the Collect, The Daily Readings, Prayer over the Offerings, and the Prayer after Communion. The standard parts of the Mass are not always the same either (they can be by habit). The Greeting of the priest (following, “In the Name of the Father…) has three options. The Penitential Rite has several options available to the Priest / Deacon. The Lord Have Mercy…” can be in English or in Greek (Kyrie…). Part 2 next week. What do you notice?

Our Parish theme:

"I am the vine, you are the branches....
