Septuagesima Sunday

Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow, can stop Jesus from being worshiped. Even though there's snow on the ground with a thick layer of ice on top, Vigil Mass will go on. And tomorrow's Masses, too. It may just be Father, the schola, and I (of the earthly human kind of worshipers), but Jesus will be worshiped (as He is always now and forever in Heaven praised and worshiped).

In the Novus Ordo, it's the Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time. In the traditional rite, it's Septuagesima Sunday. So much cooler sounding. And the Propers hit you between the eyes...Lent is coming!

Prelude: Improvisation on Kyrie from Orbis Factor
Procession Hymn: All Glory Be to God on High (Allein Gott in der Hoh')
Introit Antiphon (while Father censes the altar): Save us, Lord our God (Fr. Kelly)
Kyrie: Orbis Factor
Gloria: Andrews
Psalm Responsory: Chabanel Psalm (R. Rice)
Gospel Acclamation: Chant
Offertory hymn: Love Divine, All Loves Excelling (Hyfrydol)
Offertory antiphon: Bonum est confiteri Domino (Gregorian Missal)
Preface: recto tono
Sanctus: Ordinary XVIII
Memorial Acclamation: spoken "Dying you destroyed our death"
Our Father: chanted
Agnus Dei: Ordinary XVIII
Communion antiphon: Illumina faciem tuum super servum tuum (Gregorian Missal)
Communion hymn: O Jesus, Joy of Loving Hearts (Wareham)
Post-communion: chanted
Recessional Hymn: Lord, Whose Love in Humble Service (In Babilone)

Traditional Mass is Low Mass. Tuesday is a biggie with Missa Cantata for Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Hope the snow melts for the Procession. I'm looking forward to the Lotti Mass for Three Voices. We have a lot of Propers to chant.

Rats! you mean it's not the 4th Sunday after Epiphany? I posted some resources yesterday thinking it was. I don't know the rubrics of the calendar well and am only able to attend the EF about once a month, if lucky. I guess I better go write an OOPS! update and redo the resources.
