2nd Glorious Mystery.....March 2

Day 2

40 days after His Ressurection Jesus ascents into Heaven to sit at the right hand of His Father, there to judge the living and the dead at the end of the world - let us pray for hope.

Micki, in the February 28 thread, you responded to me by saying, "Yes, only once during Lent could we sing Alleluia. A special day for me....The Feast of the Chair of St. Peter."

I'm sorry, ma'am, but that's not correct. We are not to say or sing "Alleluia" on any day from Ash Wednesday through Holy Saturday afternoon. The word "Alleluia" must return only at the Easter Vigil Mass. The alternate words before the Gospel are to be used on the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter and even on two loftier days that always or usually come in Lent, the Solemnities of St. Joseph and the Annunciation.

I can only trust you to believe me, because I have expertise in this subject. If you hear "Alleluia" in your parish during Lent, either the priest or the organist is accidentally breaking the Church's liturgical law. It's not the "end of the world," but it should be stopped, out of obedience to be pope.

Anonymous - Just read your reply and I have to admit I made a mistake. We didn't say/sing the Alleluia. You are correct about that during Lent. We did say the Gloria, which surprised me but I guess that is ok'd on feast days during Lent. Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa. (don't correct my spelling on those words because I'm probably wrong and spellcheck is not part of commenting :-)

I was sick this past weeknd but we haven't been saying the gloria, and we haven't been singing the Allelulia.
To Anonymous:
several days ago you asked the question what does it mean to live IN God. I asked my RCIA director about this problem he said to me what do young couples say about themselves i was blank he said We are IN Love with each other. When you can spirtually do everything you can in your life for God then you will be IN God, IN Love with God, and God IN you. A book to read would be "The Imiation of Christ" By Louis Marie de Montfort, and "True Devotion". I know you mentioned you read about Mary and it is possible you have read True Devotion- read it again.
Offer everything you do to God
I hope ths analogy helps you to put IN God in perspective for you and your family.

Michele - Yes, none of us are saying Alleluia or Gloria during Lent. Glorias are permitted on those special feast days...praying it, not sure it can be sung.

Great answer about couples being "in love".....makes sense to me. Thanks.

The cutting and pasting was of the internet the rest of the order of service was nothing to do with my church, it was just the on line document that had all the words of the hymn \I wanted to quote, and our church is liturgically correct, but we also had sung " Let all mortal flesh" including the verse with the Alleluia 's does that count ??
