for clergy: “new” Missal Examination of Conscience

20 Nov

Hey, Father ….

As you prepare for next Sunday and the first use of the “new” Mass translation, how about hearing with me these questions Father John Baldovi, S.J., suggests for us?

1. How have I prepared liturgically?
2. How have I prepared spiritually?
3. Are the “horizontal” and “vertical” in balance?
4. Do I make myself (ouch!) the center of the liturgy?
5. How well do I know the missal?

One line that Father Baldovin speaks in his presentation (below) that caught my fancy – maybe something I need to hear? – is this: “Rubrics are there, after all, to protect the Christian people from some of our idiosyncrasies.”
