Sacramentum Caritatis

You'd think someone would have the goods by now on this...

The Mass I attended yesterday might likely be the type of Mass many will be attending in the future...Kyrie, Sanctus and Agnus Dei all in their respective languages (Greek and Latin) and chanted with much participation, which always amazes me, since I always figure that I'm one of the few who actually knows the words and tune...but not so. And the preist at this Mass--it wouldn't matter if he were facing East or West he doesn't make eye contact-he prays the prayers to God.

  1. Michael,
    Could you tell more ... where you were, why the special mass, and so on? Is there some kind of larger trend happening?

    I attended one on Ash Wednesday that surprised me with -- I think -- the same thing you're describing. It was in Ann Arbor at St. Thomas the Apostle. And it was very cool. One of the hymns was completely in Latin, to boot.
