How to Begin Mass
#1
Cardinal Luis Tagle of Manila has told his priests that they should not say "Good morning" to their congregation as they begin Mass.

Cardinal Tagle said that the everyday greeting is a distraction, failing to convey the solemn joy of the Eucharistic assembly.

"Is not the expression, 'The Lord be with you,' more than enough?" the cardinal asked.

Good for him!!

Just by way of contrast/comparison, in the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, the priest ALWAYS begins by chanting: "Blessed is the Kingdom of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit: now and ever, and unto ages of ages." to which the people respond, "Amen", after which begins the Great Ektenia (Litany).  Greetings and jokes and announcements are saved for much later.

To quote a monk who shall remain anonymous (because I don't know his name  :grin: :grin:), "Tobacco is the devil's weed!"  So, in light of that, kielbasa and/or pierogies instead.  :)
