Another line that might cause some confusion comes just before the sharing of communion. We’re used to saying, “Lord, I am not worthy to receive you.” But the new translation will have us say, “Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof.” To a lot of English speakers, this will sound like a reference to the roof of the mouth, as though we are not worthy to swallow communion – even though, immediately after saying these words, we drop everything and enter the communion line.
Perhaps the most obvious change in the Roman Missal will be the dialogue that appears several times during Mass. Currently, when the Priest says, “The Lord be with you,” we respond with a hearty, “And also with you.” Beginning November 27th, we will respond, “And with your spirit.”
Tuesday, November 1st in the Keller Room at St. Jude following the 6 p.m. All Saints Mass (about 7 p.m.).
With the help of his guitar and singing, Jim will lead us through a spiritual journey. If you have never experienced an evening with Jim, it‟s something you shouldn‟t miss!
