23rd Sunday in OT--Year B

Processional: O Lord, My Good and Gracious God (OLD HUNDREDTH)

Psalm: Gelineau

Offertory: Oravi Deum meum (chant)

Communion: Vovete, et reddite (chant)
Like as the Hart (Howells)

Thanksgiving: To Jesus Christ, Our Sovereign King (ICH GLAUB AN GOTT)

Recessional: Thou, Whose Almighty Word (ITALIAN HYMN)

This is a "Proper" weekend to say the least; Introit, Offertory as well as both the Communion Proper text from the Graduale as well as the Communion Proper text from the Sacramentary (Ps. 42).

As a side note, my parish uses Worship II which is a bit outdated no doubt, but still has some "thee's" and "thou's" that we all enjoy. We won't be investing in any new hymnals until the translations are firmly in place. Then we'll see . . .

I attend the Church of the Ascension (Episcopal) in Chicago, where the full Graduale propers are chanted in Latin at every High Mass (every Sunday and principal feast day). My favorite "only at Ascension" moment was a couple of years ago when we honored organist David Schrader for his 25 years of service to the parish. His first comment was, "I just realized that this means I've sung through the Graduale Romanum 25 times." :) Heaven!
