One memory of forty-four years ago, my baptismal day, was some concern about reciting the Creed. I had been going to Mass for a number of months, so the Nicene Creed was okay in my head. But there was enough to trip me up in the Apostle’s Creed. (I actually heard a priest this summer start reciting the Apostle’s Creed, then trailing off when the Mass went in two different directions on it. Before MR3, people might have gone with it.)
Anyway, I got into the baptistery and behind Father McCarthy, in stained glass, what did I see? “I believe in God the Father …” The whole thing. I kept my eyes focused on the water in the font. I figured I was doing better to take the Catholic thing seriously. I recited the Apostle’s Creed, no problem.
Speaking of MR3, it is approved to use the Apostle’s Creed now. How many parishes are doing it? Anybody have any tale to tell?
