Singing again

Well it does to the people who post here... dispassionate and reasoned debate, with a good deal of humour thrown in for good measure.

Entering "Shrine Mass" into a Well-Known-Search-Engine tells me (via an Equally-Well-Known-Advisor-On Journeys) that it is one of three shrines in Massachussetts, and if "11" is two and not eleven it would be the National Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette . . . .

Somehow I think I might not be working on the right lines - :?:

Much more modest restart for us: Mass setting, Acclamations and Psalm only.

Well, I don't think that it is inappropriate to say that I enjoyed that.
But, more to the point, it simply felt right to be singing the Mass again.
The restrictions that we have endured on how we celebrate the Holy Mass have been frustrating and painful, but entirely appropriate in the circumstances; and that desert period has made the liberation of again singing all the more joyous.
Thanks be to God.
