Wake Up – Go Forth

In the Concluding Rites of the Mass, the priest sends us forth with words of dismissal. In the new translation, he might say, "Go forth, the Mass is ended," "Go and announce the Gospel of the Lord," "Go in peace, glorifying the Lord by your life," or "Go in peace." These words remind us that the Mass isn’t just something that we do for an hour on Sunday. We are sent to do something afterward. Sometimes going to Mass can become routine, and we stop really paying attention to the meaning of what is being said. We might forget that the Mass calls us to go forth and live its message in our lives. Here, some teens talk about how the new words of the Mass might help people to "wake up" and pay attention

Liturgical Training Publications and SpiritJuice Productions have put together have out together a series of videos for young people as a resource regarding the New Roman Missal.  We have profiled them all over the past Wednesdays.

Consider taking advantage of the change in the mass as an opportunity for greater inclusion of young people in the ministries of the weekend liturgies.
