I wonder how many priests have hit MR3 fatigue by post-Communion. I don’t know what you’re seeing, but rarely is a priest referring to the Missal for the final formula of the Mass. Most seem to be on autopilot, and of Pope Benedict’s newly-crafted bits, I heard them from one priest on one weekend. No more.
Do you have a favorite of these new texts? My thought is that these are among the few bright spots in the innovations in the English MR3. The choices are:
- Go forth, the Mass is ended.
- Go and announce the Gospel of the Lord.
- Go in peace, glorifying the Lord by your life.
- Go in peace.
I’m still hearing, “Go in peace to love and serve the Lord (and one another).” But that’s not even an option. What about your parish?
