As everyone knows (not) the penitential act of the Ordinary Form Ash Wednesday Mass is moved from the Introductory Rite to after the homily with the blessing and imposition of ashes.
Except for this year, because I forgot, I have asked that the Kyrie by itself (as in the EF) be chanted after the Greeting of the OF Mass, since technically this is not a penitential act.
So, at our Ash Wednesday Mass, I greeted the congregation with "The Lord be with You" and then went directly into "Let us Pray". It is a bit jarring.
Am I the only one in the world, up until yesterday's Ash Wednesday Mass, who has the Kyrie chanted without the penitential act during the Introductory Rite?
I believe also, that the Kyrie should not be omitted when the Rite of Sprinkling Holy Water is use. It should be chanted after the "absolution."
What say thee?
