Re: Guidelines for readers

Glad to see that at least one priest is taking seriously the risk that the simple faithful might think the Incarnation took the form of a large book with a red leather cover. In part, though, we are lead to this understanding by the way the book of the Gospels is reverenced - with incense and signi...

Re: Pipes versus digital

This BBC news item is an interesting discussion of digitising the sounds old instruments - in this case harpsichord - and gives some reasons as to why you might want to go digital. It also makes it clear that the one and the other should not be seen as interchageable but each has merits that ought n...

Re: Holiday recommendations

Here's one for you If you fancy a lie in, there's a 1.30pm Mass… Or perhaps you're going to York on the first or third Sunday? You could report back to us on the 6pm Mass experience. Slightly more helpfully, this page lists the York Pastoral Area (about half way down the page) and you could at leas...

Re: Arranging Music for Music Group

[url = m]Instrumentation and the Liturgical Ensemble[/url] by Marty Haugen is a first-rate place to start. You can, no doubt, order this through Decani Music . You can do worse than asking on this forum for advice! If you ask enough in advance, you might find we already have arrangements from which ...

Re: Veneration of the Saints

…then we won't pray to Mary and the saints - though we might ask them to pray with us in the same way as we would ask our friends. This, perhaps only subconsciously, is a true expression of deep belief in the communion of saints that we profess in the Creed. Thanks for your prayers, P and for askin...

Re: Veneration of the Saints

Canons to right of them, canons to left of them, canons in front of them… Not personally devoted to the saints (not even coming from Southampton, where devotion to The Saints might have been a forgiveable passion). To go back to JW's point: " The whole idea of saints was that they are an exampl...

Re: Organ in Lent

The Liturgy Office Website reports (n23): "The first Sunday of Lent marks the beginning of the annual Lenten observance.". So, presumably, we can still have pancakes, chocolate and alcohol on the Thursday, Friday and Saturday between Ash Wednesday and that Sunday? If the Sundays are treate...

Re: Laetare or mothering!!?

PP has told me that the children from the school will be doing bits of this Mass and head teacher tells me they will read, including the psalm and accs. At least you've been told. I only know that the school will be there this weekend because I happened to read the readers' list... The message is a...

about putting Christ back at the centre of the liturgical action I'm not convinced that Christ is the centre of the liturgy, given that the first prayer addressed to Christ comes well into the communion rite (Lord Jesus Christ, son of the living God...) and pretty much everything before that is add...
