Re: Services of Word and Communion in the absence of a priest.

Near the end of page 5 in the “excellent paper by Fr Ed Foley, OFM Cap, in 2002” Southern Comfort linked to it has: “Receiving communion outside of Mass, is a good and right and just thing to do. It is an intimate encounter with the divine presence, and a grace event.” And then he immediately conti...

Re: Services of Word and Communion in the absence of a priest.

The 1983 Code of Canon Law: “Canon 918. It is most strongly recommended that the faithful receive holy communion in the course of a eucharistic celebration. If, however, for good reason they ask for it apart from the Mass, it is to be administered to them, observing the liturgical rites.” Supersede...

Re: Services of Word and Communion in the absence of a priest.

If Communion Services “are not a good idea” I think there is a problem is that the Church’s practice does not match the theory. <snip> Why not encourage Communion Services at 7.00 am and 8.00 pm so more people have the benefits of frequent reception of Holy Communion? Because, as stated above, the ...

Re: Services of Word and Communion in the absence of a priest.

Some extracts from the 1973 liturgical book “Holy Communion and the Worship of the Eucharist Outside of Mass”: ...some of which have been superseded by the more recent (2004) legislation I quoted, which also supersedes some provisions of the Code of Canon Law. First of all, it is important to reali...

Re: Hymns that conflict with Catholic doctrine.

At the recent "Adoremus" congress, on 8 September, Bishop Robert Barron, in one of his keynote addresses picked out the one line in the hymn, “Not in some heaven light years away,” and criticised it on the basis that that heaven is not light years away but is very close to us in the Eucharist. Perh...

Re: Services of Word and Communion in the absence of a priest.

On a slight tangent, I have never really understood the distribution of communion on Good Friday – again, outside Mass. Historically, Communion for hundreds of years was not distributed on Good Friday until the recent reforms of the Holy Week rites. For many centuries, the only person who received ...

Re: Services of Word and Communion in the absence of a priest.

Here is the full text at the link: Celebrations in the Absence of a Priest Many people are familiar with what used to be called “Eucharistic Services”, today more often (and more accurately) known as “Services of Word and Communion”. These first started around the time of the 1973 Rite of Distributi...

Re: Services of Word and Communion in the absence of a priest.

It's about differentiating between Mass and other services, and also about trying to maintain the iink between Communion and the action of the Eucharist (Mass). If you can always "get" Communion, why have Mass? Some dioceses have banned services of Word and Communion on weekdays (I gather Clifton ma...

Re: Music for Papal Mass in Phoenix Park, Dublin

It may be the norm for published Masses to include all the Mass parts, but in average parishes it is certainly not the norm to use a matching set at the same Mass. I wonder why. Perhaps for the reasons I mentioned further up the thread. The forms are sufficiently different that folks instinctively ...

Re: Music for Papal Mass in Phoenix Park, Dublin

Even if not mandatory, I'm not sure why one wouldn't want to match the three acclamations. Perhaps I am just used to the tradition in England & Wales which predates the requirements of the Permission to Publish Panel! 8) While I agree with you, Nick, that matching the three acclamations with the Ho...

Re: WANTED wedding psalm

I'm not quite sure what point AGM is making. Yes, there are variations of Grail I in the Divine Office, but it is still essentially Grail I. And yes, the Divine Office did use the 1966 Singing Version of Grail I with Gregory Murray's few changes as a basis, even though the prior approval was for the...

Re: Music for Papal Mass in Phoenix Park, Dublin

The title of Margaret Daly's collection was Alleluia, Amen! The setting of "When we eat" is to the hymn tune ST COLUMBA. It was originally done at the St Thomas More Centre in London in 1974, and fits well with the former text "we proclaim your death, Lord Jesus, until you come in glory". T.C. Kelly...

Re: Music for Papal Mass in Phoenix Park, Dublin

Thanks for this link, Nick! The "Lourdes Gloria" is still listed as being by Jean-Paul Lécot, whereas readers of this forum will know that Lécot "borrowed" (without permission or acknowledgement) Mgr Francis's Duffy's Gloria verses, reharmonized them (badly) and redistributed the text, adding a four...

Re: WANTED wedding psalm

Just so that those reading this thread are clear: The version of the Grail psalms authorized for use in England and Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Australia is Grail I, the 1963 version. It is contained both in the Lectionaries of those countries and in the Divine Office used in those countries. NB: t...

Re: Liturgical Tourism

They must have a better organ at Palazzola than they did when I was there a few years ago. Mendelssohn and Widor would have been impossible!
