I just celebrated the Votive Mass of the Blessed Virgin Mary in our Martha and Mary Chapel. I used the 2002 Latin Edition of the Roman Missal. I also incorporated the choreography of the EF Mass into this OF Mass.
If only! If only! If only!!!! If only this manner of celebrating the Ordinary Form Mass had been followed after Vatican II would there have been the Liturgy wars??????
And I gave a great homily on the Mass!!!!
MASS PROPER: MASS OF THE BVM In Ordinary Time
MASS Salve, sancta Parens (white)
Hail, holy Mother, who gave birth to the King who rules heaven and earth for ever and ever. (Ps. 44: 2) My heart has spoken a good word: I speak my works to the King. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen. Hail, holy Mother, thou who gave birth to the King who rules heaven and earth for ever and ever.
Grant, Lord God, that we, your servants, may rejoice in unfailing health of mind and body, and, through the glorious intercession of Blessed Mary Ever-Virgin, may we be set free from present sorrow and come to enjoy eternal happiness. Through our Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy spirit, God, forever and ever.
