Due to greater responsiveness at the National Catholic Reporter blog, beginning with the Fourth Sunday in Lent, Reading 032B, March 15, 2015, my interest began shifting from annotating my index here, to engaging conversation there.  I may keep up the Bibliography, but without further comment.  Time will tell.

Between November 25, 2011 and November 25, 2012, Personal Notes systematically examined the illiterate 2011 Missal.  On April 7, 2013, with Reading 045C 2nd Sunday of Easter_A Catholic Bible Study 130407, Personal Notes systematically began to incorporate material from A Commentary on the Order of Mass of The Roman Missal:  A New English Translation:  Developed under the Auspices of the Catholic Academy of Liturgy, Edward Foley (ed.) (Collegeville, Minnesota:  Liturgical Press, 2011).  The hope is that this approach will help pray with the new Missal, despite itself.

 

 

 

For more on sources see the Appendix file.  A complete set of Personal Notes, dating from the Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time, July 14, 2002 to the present, is on the web site at www.western-civilization.com/CBQ/Personal%20Notes. 

 

 

 

The Responsorial Antiphon for this Sunday is .God mounts his throne to shouts of joy:  a blare of trumpets for the Lord (Psalm 47:6).[29]

 

In the gobbledygook prayer at Sunday Mass immediately following the forgiveness of sins, the Faithful hearing the 2011 Roman Missal can listen for “gladden us with holy joys.”[30]  For a more thorough examination of the illiterate 2011 Roman Missal, go to 0560 Missal:  The Ascension_A Catholic Bible Study 120520.docx.

 

This is a call for grace that some Black Baptists bring to mind with But now are they many members, yet but one body (1 Corinthians 12:20).[31]
