The Armchair Liturgist: Ash Wednesday’s Penitential Rite

armchair1.jpgTomorrow’s liturgy doesn’t call for one till after the homily. Do you go on auto-pilot like most clergy do? Do you remind the priest to skip the Lord Have Mercy right to the opening prayer? Does it matter?

    Thanks for the reminder!

    Since I rarely go to church on Ash Wednesday — only a handful of times over the past couple of decades or more (even when I was a child, my parents did not make a big deal of going to church on Ash Wednesday) — I had not noticed this!

    Btw, it’s time for my annual Lenten e-greeting: may your ashes be dark and your Lent long.

    We had a bishop for one of the masses, and he put in the Kyrie (Form B). You wouldn’t think I’d need to remind a bishop! Oh well, there’s always next year . . .
