January 16, 2014
Eucharistic Prayer: Dialogues, Acclamations
James Wickman

“The Eucharistic Prayer is the center and summit of the entire celebration. Joining the people with himself, the priest prays the Eucharistic Prayer in the name of the entire assembly . . . .”
- Sing to the Lord, 176

Communion Rite: Purpose and Options
Charles Thatcher

“The high point of the Communion Rite is the reception of Holy Communion. This is preceded by rites that prepare the faithful to receive the Lord’s Body and Blood as spiritual food. . . . Because the Communion chant expresses the unity of those processing and receiving the Holy Sacrament, communal singing is commendable. The singing of the people should be preeminent.
- Sing to the Lord, 184, 189

Concluding Rites: Dialogues, Blessings, Dismissals, and More
Steven Janco

The whole assembly is dismissed “so that each may go back to doing good works, praising and blessing God.”
- General Instruction of the Roman Missal, 90c

Mass for Christmas, Easter, Weddings, Funerals
Kathleen DeJardin

“Over the course of the year the Church celebrates the whole mystery of Christ, from the Incarnation to Pentecost Day and the days of waiting for the Advent of the Lord.”
- General Norms on the Liturgical Year, 17

Intercultural Celebrations of Mass
Ricky Manalo, CSP

“Even as the liturgical music of the Western European tradition is to be remembered, cherished, and used, the rich cultural and ethnic heritage of the many peoples of our country must also be recognized, fostered, and celebrated. Cultural pluralism has been the common heritage of all Americans, and ‘the Catholic community is rapidly re-encounterign itself as an immigrant Church.’”
- Sing to the Lord, 57
