Ordinary31 – Now we will respond, “And with your Spirit.” The Confiteor is different in only two places. And we strike our chest. For many older parishioners, these changes will remind them of the old Latin-English Missal. We haven’t changed so much.
Ordinary30 – Mass 2.0 – We’re getting a new copy of the Big Red Book (called the Sacramentary or the Roman Missal). After going over a brief history of this book, I encourage people to take a fresh look at what we say at Mass and why.
Ordinary29 – If the coin has Cesar’s image, then give it back to him. But whose image to do we bear? We bear the image and likeness of God himself! Repay to Cesar what belongs to Cesar, and to God what belongs to God… but even Cesar belongs to God.
