3 The goal of liturgy is not perfection The goal of liturgy PRAYER is PRAYER

4 How do we get to this goal PRAYER PRAYER

5 THE SECOND VATICAN COUNCIL Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy December 4, 1963

6 #1 #9 #10 #14 #21 #37 #59

7 Liturgy as a bridge between the transcendent and the human

8 In a holy place we experience THE HOLY through WORD SONG BREAD AND WINE SILENCE TOUCH

9 ‘HOLY’ Things for ‘HOLY’ people We are the human hands and feet of our God

10 The presence of Christ is mediated through the HUMAN COMMUNITY

11 We come as individuals We pray as a community WHAT ONE BRINGS ALL BRING

12 Liturgy as the bridge between the personal and the communal

13 Individualism verses Community

14 EUCHARIST Celebration of the unity of the Father and the Son in the Holy Spirit

15 Christ calls us to become one with him and to thus share divine life SENSE OF DIVINE HOSPITALITY

16 MINISTRIES call for a surrender of self in order to experience the Christ in each other COMMUNITY

17 To be fully prepared to experience Christ PERSON OF PRAYER

18 Liturgy as a bridge between the sanctuary and the marketplace

19 Personally take on the self-effacing LOVE OF CHRIST

20 Participate in MASS Transformed to see the world in a DIVINE WAY

21 Transformation  Uncomfortable  Give up wealth  Risk job, esteem, position or even life itself  What else???????

22 To be like Christ we must be willing to identify WITH HIS DEATH

23 Bottom line EUCHARISTIC HOSPITALITY is not warm and fuzzy


25 We have surrendered ourselves not only to Christ We have also surrendered ourselves to the Community

26 What I do in life is reflective of what I do at the EUCHARIST

27 I am the Body of Christ and I need to participate in the wonders of the WORD PROCLAIMED and the WORD LIVED OUT

28 Liturgy as a bridge between the Past and the Future

29 The Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy Gave us the vision we are now living out in our liturgical and personal lives.

30 We do not live in the past However the past gives us a vision for the present and the future

31 We gather as the early Christians did to TAKE BLESS EAT

32 We change because we as humans change Do you do everything in life as you did 5, 10, 20 years ago? Will you do everything the same next year as you do today?

33 Through everything we do we are still connected to the past through OUR PRESENT AND FUTURE EXPERIENCES

34 What are we doing in and through the Liturgy? How can the way we are doing Liturgy be enhanced? (Rev. Msgr. Kevin Irwin)

35 All Liturgy is Pastoral –Liturgy is always about and for the people. All Liturgy is Personal –Every act of liturgy is a personal appropriation of what is celebrated. All Liturgy is Paschal –Every enactment of the liturgy is the actualization of the paschal mystery.

36 All Liturgy Concerns Participation –Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy states that the full, conscious and active participation in the liturgy is demanded by the very nature of the liturgy itself--- use of all our senses. All Liturgy is done in and through the power of the Holy Spirit –Invocation of the Holy Spirit in Prayers and especially the Eucharistic Prayers.

37 All Liturgy Proclaims the Word of God –Proclamation of the Scriptures at all liturgical rites—we have received a more generous share in the treasures of the Bible at the liturgy. All Liturgy is Paradoxical –Liturgy is about enabling us to view the world through paradoxical lenses, and it is about celebrating our faith’s paradoxes in sacred signs, symbols, words, and gestures.

38 So what about our future and the upcoming changes?


40 ROMAN MISSAL EDITIONS SINCE VATICAN COUNCIL II  Interim Rite---Latin (1965) English (1966)  1 st typical edition---Latin (1969) English (1970)  2 nd typical edition---Latin(1975) English (1985)  3 rd typical edition--Latin (2002) English (20xx)

41 Who is responsible for the work of translating Liturgical texts?  International Committee on English in the Liturgy (ICEL)  Vox Clara Committee  The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments

42 ICEL –Established in 1963 by the Bishops of the English speaking countries that were in attendance at the Second Vatican Council –It is a mixed Commission of Conferences of Bishops in countries where English is used in the celebration of Sacred Liturgy according to the Roman Rite –Purpose is to prepare the English translation of Latin Liturgical Books and Texts at the direction of the Holy See

43 Vox Clara Committee –Established on July 19, 2001 –Purpose is “to assist and advise the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments in fulfilling its responsibilities with regard to the English translations of liturgical texts” –12 Bishops from the world’s English speaking Bishop Conferences –Reviews the translations of ICEL according to the directives of Liturgiam Authenticam March 28, 2001

44 Liturgiam Authenticam –“Liturgical Translation will facilitate the development of a sacral vernacular, characterized by a vocabulary, syntax and grammar that is proper to divine worship.” –Translations to be precise, theologically faithful and effectively proclaimable. –The committee (Vox Clara) is a instrument of consultation

45 The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments –Member of the Roman Curia –Responsibilities include: Regulation and promotion of the Liturgy Promoting liturgical pastoral activity Revision of Liturgical Texts Granting the recognitio (approval) to translations of Liturgical Books and their adaptations Ensuring that Liturgical Norms are accurately observed

46 Process for the development of translations of Liturgical Texts –A new or revised Liturgical Book or Text is prepared in Latin –ICEL prepares the English translation –The ICEL translation is presented to all the English speaking Conferences of Bishops –These Conferences review and make recommendations of any changes

47 After review of changes (and their rejection or acceptance) the given Conference of Bishops votes on approving the given texts –After an affirming vote of all the Conferences of Bishops, the texts are sent to Rome for their approval –Texts are studied by the Vox Clara Committee who makes a recommendation to the CDWDS –CDWDS gives approval –Texts are promulgated by the Holy See

48 REVISION OF THE ORDO MISSAE IN THE THIRD TYPICAL EDITION OF THE ROMAN MISSAL  Revision of the Order of the Mass in English is for all the English speaking countries (not just the US)  It is a translation from Latin into English

49 Conferences of Bishops that are full members of International Commission on English in the Liturgy (ICEL) –Australia, Canada, England and Wales, India, Ireland, New Zealand, Pakistan, the Philippines, Scotland, South Africa, United States of America

50 Other Conferences of Bishops in whose countries English is used in the Liturgy may be associate members of ICEL –Antilles, Bangladesh, the Episcopal Conference of the Pacific (Agana, Novmea, Papeete, Samoa-Apia, Suva), Gambia-Sierra Leone, Ghana, Kenya, Malaysia-Singapore, Malawi, Nigeria, Papua New Guinea and the Solomon Islands, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe

51  Each country approves the translation and can request adaptations  These adaptations are then reviewed by Vox Clara and the CDWDS.  Approved adaptations become part of that countries edition of the Roman Missal.

52 How can I prepare for these changes?  Living the Liturgy ‘as a bridge’  Being a person of prayer  Living in the moment  Letting God direct your life

53 We can remember Msgr. Irwin’s points about celebrating Liturgy: All Liturgy is Pastoral All Liturgy is Personal All Liturgy is Paschal All Liturgy Concerns Participation All Liturgy is done in and through the power of the Holy Spirit All Liturgy Proclaims the Word of God All Liturgy is Paradoxical


55 What are these changes?  We have already experienced some: Communion Rite, vessels, preparation of the gifts, etc.  New revisions will be mostly in texts: prayers, responses, music texts, etc.  Nothing to worry about

56 New USCCB Document –Sing to the Lord: Music in Divine Worship November 2007 Guidelines provided to DIRECT those preparing for the celebration of the Sacred Liturgy according to the current liturgical books (ordinary form of celebration of the Eucharist)

57 Singing together in church expresses so well the sacramental presence of God to his people Music is a sign of God’s love for us and our love for him Very personal and yet it has a communal dimension Faith grows when it is well expressed in celebration Singing is one of the primary ways that the faithful participates actively in the Liturgy

58 The primary role of music in the Liturgy is to help the members of the Assembly to join themselves to the action of Christ and to give voice to the gift of faith St. Augustine: “You should sing as wayfarers do—sing but continue your journey. Do not grow tried, but sing with joy.” St. Augustine: “He who sings, prays twice.”

59 SOME OF THE LANGUAGE CHANGES “The Lord be with you.” “And also with you.” becomes “And with your spirit.”

60 Act of Penitence I confess to almighty God and to you, my brothers and sisters, that I have greatly sinned in my thoughts and in my words, in what I have done and in what I have failed to do, (And, striking their breast they say:) Through my fault, through my fault, Through my most grievous fault;

61 therefore I ask blessed Mary, ever- Virgin, all the Angels and Saints, and you, my brothers and sisters, to pray for me to the Lord our God. Priest: May almighty God have mercy on us, forgive us our sins, and bring us to everlasting life.

62 The Gloria Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to people of good will. We praise you. we bless you, we adore you we glorify you we give you thanks for your great glory,

63 Lord God, heavenly King, O God, almighty Father. Lord Jesus Christ, Only Begotten Son, Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us; you take away the sins of the world, receive our prayer;

64 you are seated at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us. For you alone are the Holy One, you alone are the Lord, you alone are the Most High, Jesus Christ, with the Holy Spirit, in the glory of God the Father. Amen.

65 Profession of Faith I believe in one God, the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible. I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the Only Begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages.

66 God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father; through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven, (at the word that follow up to and including and became man, all bow) and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary, and became man.

67 For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate, he suffered death and was buried, and rose again on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and his kingdom will have no end.

68 I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified, who has spoken through the prophets. I believe in one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church. I confess one baptism for the forgiveness of sins and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.

69 Response at the Preparation of the Gifts May the Lord accept the sacrifice at your hands for the praise and glory of his name, for our good and the good of his holy Church.

70 Preface Dialogue Priest: Let us give thanks to the Lord our God. People: It is right and just.

71 Holy, Holy Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts. Heaven and earth are full of your glory. Hosanna in the highest. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

72 Sample wording of the Eucharistic Prayer On the day before he was to suffer he took bread in his holy and venerable hands, and with eyes raised to heaven to you, O God, his almighty Father, giving you thanks he said the blessing, broke the bread and gave it to his disciples, saying: TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU, AND EAT OF IT, FOR THIS IS MY BODY, WHICH WILL BE GIVEN UP FOR YOU.

73 In a similar way, when supper was ended, he took this precious chalice in his holy and venerable hands, and once more giving you thanks, he said the blessing and gave the chalice to his disciples, saying: TAKE THIS, ALL OF YOU AND DRINK FROM IT, FOR THIS IS THE CHALICE OF MY BLOOD, THE BLOOD OF THE NEW AND ETERNAL COVENANT, WHICH WILL BE POURED OUT FOR YOU AND FOR MANY FOR THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS. DO THIS IN MEMORY OF ME.”

74 Mystery of Faith Priest: The Mystery of Faith. People: We proclaim your Death, O Lord, and profess your Resurrection until you come again. When we eat this Bread and drink this Cup, we proclaim your Death, O Lord, until you come again. Save us, Savior of the world, for by your Cross and Resurrection you have set us free.

75 Through him, and with him, and in him, O God, almighty Father, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, all glory and honor is yours, for ever and ever. Amen. At the Savior’s command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say: Our Father……

76 Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

77 Lord Jesus Christ, who said to your Apostles, Peace I leave you, my peace I give you, look not on our sins, but on the faith of your Church, and graciously grant her peace and unity in accordance with your will. Who live and reign for ever and ever. Amen.

78 Invitation to Holy Communion Priest: Behold the Lamb of God behold him who takes away the sins of the world. Blessed are those called to the supper of the Lamb. People:Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.

79 Dismissal Go forth, the Mass is ended. Go and announce the Gospel of the Lord. Go in peace, glorifying the Lord by your life. Go in peace.

80 What is the Church calling me to do in preparation?  Love the Eucharist  Share hospitality  Be faithful Ministers  Love your Community

81 How can I prepare for these changes?  Living the Liturgy ‘as a bridge’  Being a person of prayer  Living in the moment  Letting God direct your life
