INTRODUCTION OF NEW SUNG MASS SETTING - REVISED ROMAN MISSAL

"And With Your Spirit"
In the new translation of The Roman Missal, one of the most noticeable changes comes in the short dialoguerepeated four times during Mass: “The Lord be with you. / And with your spirit.” The people’s response is amore accurate translation of the Latin
Et cum spiritu tuo
. This translation also help us to see the dialogue’sroots in scripture. For example, in the letter to the Galatians, Saint Paul writes, “The grace of our Lord JesusChrist be with your spirit, brothers and sisters” (6:18, NRSV; see also Philippians 4:23 and Philemon 25).Saint Paul is speaking of the special gifts of the Holy Spirit poured out upon them. In the liturgy, thisdialogue is only used when an ordained minister presides. Some of the early Church Fathers interpreted thisas an allusion to the gift of the Spirit given by Christ in the Sacrament of Holy Orders. At the beginning of Mass, at the reading of the Gospel, at the beginning of the Eucharistic Prayer, and just before the blessingand dismissal, priest and people exchange this dialogue of prayer, seeking the Lord’s presence in our midst.
ON OUR WAY WITH JESUS: Our annual program to assist parents in the preparation of their children for the sacraments of Reconciliation andEucharist is about to begin. Registration forms are available at the parish office. We would ask that parents make every effort to registeras soon as possible.
Our first family meeting is on Monday, Oct. 24
at 7:30 p.m. in the church.
