Practice in the Office

At the “other NCR,” a priest and his secretary “anticipate” the new Roman Missal translation with an office exchange. If you are a subscriber, you can get the whole story. Let me know if there’s anything good there, will you?

Commentary:

- The greeting “Peace be with you,” is reserved liturgically for bishops.

- Are liturgical greetings appropriate for secular settings? I suppose it’s better than “Good Morning!” in churches.

    I am a secretary in a parish. Usually our greetings go something like this:

    “Hi Fran.”

    “Hi Father J.”

    “I’m going over to church. Will you have that folder ready for my 10am meeting?”

    “It is ready. See you after Mass.”

    I’d be interested in the rest of the article as well, if there is anything interesting in it.

  2. “The greeting ‘Peace be with you,’ is reserved liturgically for bishops.” Really? Sublimely ridiculous and fabulous blog fodder.
