November 2011


Today is Christ The King.

That means it’s the end of this Liturical Year.

Next Sunday will be the 1st Sunday of Advent, the start of the new Liturgical Year.

But this time, it will be more than just any start of any new year. Come next Sunday, 27th November, we will start using the New Translation of the Roman Missal.

Which means today was the LAST Sunday we will be celebrating Mass as we have celebrated it since 1973 – for me personally, the way I celebrated Mass since Day 1! I don’t know about you, but I’m kinda melancholic…

BUT I am excited for the New Translation! =)

And the responsorial psalm today was Psalm 23, one of my fave psalms – The Good Shepherd. And a little girl when asked to recite it hits it on the spot!

“The Lord is my shepherd, that’s all I (need to) know.”

Have a Blessed Week all & see you next (liturgical) year! =)

Only a little over a week before we start using the New Translation of the Roman Missal. Too bad I don’t have a copy of the new missal yet…anyone know where I can get one?

Anyhow, I bet some people will find it more difficult than others to accept the change!

As for me, I’m excited to be in the times of change.

The New Translation will greatly increase our understanding & appreciation of Mass…how can one not be excited?!

Also, this November 27th, 2011 will be written down in history and I can tell my (future) children & grandchildren that I was there when it happened. =)
