Well, the first Masses were prayed last night with the new translation. How did it go for you?
In La Crescent, things went pretty well, it seems. Your’s truly forgot to intone the “Lord be with you” prior to the Gospel, which threw people off in their response, but other than that the people and Father did okay.
The words of the Eucharistic prayers will need some getting use to. Quite a mouthful for the priest to say, and harder for the person-in-the-pews to understand at first, but certainly a fuller rendering of the Latin text. I just hope we prayed better last night than we did the weekend before.
