Sorry for the delay. I dropped and damaged the external hard drive that holds all my photographs. It appears to be dead and deader. If anyone has a place to recommend to try and pull my photos off drop me a line...please :)
For the Feast of Corpus Christi, June 26, I attended the 10 am Mass at Sacred Heart in Troy.
The music was accompanied by either the organ or the piano.
Opening: At the Lamb's High Feast
Offertory: We Are Many Parts
Communion: Song of the Body of Christ
Communion Meditation: Open My Eyes (but skipped the bridge)
Closing: Sing of the Lord's Goodness
Gloria: Sing Glory to God (whatever that one is)
Mass Setting: was suave and jazzy, the one with the Alleluia with extra words, the Honor and Glory..
Responsorial Psalm was changed from Psalm 147 to Psalm 63.
Rumor has it that there is a Sequence for Corpus Christi....I think it is just a rumor.
Father started off Mass by announcing that it was the Solemnity of the Body and Blood of Christ formally known as Corpus Christi, but no one knows Latin anymore. (sigh.)
How much do you weigh? That's considered a rude question. I weigh between 195 to 205. What do we weigh? What do we eat? There is no more food pyramid; it's now a plate. Coffee was good for you, then bad, then good. Bacon was always good for you. Pepsi is bad for you. (what about coke? is that ok?) (Thank you Father Nutritionist) Food is good. It is necessary and pleasurable. In a little while, we will be getting spiritual food. Transubstantiation. What are we cannibals? Intelligent folk seem to think we are. Look at the last supper. This bread becomes My Body. Jesus doesn't cut a hunk of flesh for us and serve it (cause it be raw.....) Jesus, under the appearance of bread becomes Body and Blood. Thank God for that. A prayer for Communion: May we become more like what we consume, You.
After the closing song, everyone knelt and recited the Prayer to the Sacred Heart.
