The words that we hear during the Liturgy of the Word won’t change too much. We will continue to hear the reader say, "The word of the Lord," and we will respond, "Thanks be to God." The Liturgy of the Word reminds us how important words have been for our Church. We have passed down the story of salvation in the words of scripture. Now, with the changes to the Mass, we will be hearing and saying words that more closely resemble the words used by those in the early, Latin-speaking Church. Here, some teens talk about how they feel about using words that more closely align with those used by our ancestors in faith.
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 will profile them all over the next 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.
