Check it out

I thought this was a really great post over at Amy Welborn's blog. The title caught my attention immediately: "Wisdom! Be Attentive!"

What do you think?

It kind of sat funny for me, but since I can't quite put into words why, I'll have to go with the "smile and nod" plan, grin!

Mimi,

I think it was a simplification of the Eastern Christian tradition in some ways, but seeing the Liturgy with new eyes, much like I did the first few times I went to a Divine Liturgy, was interesting to me.

My perspective was different, as I came from going to the Tridentine Mass and Amy is from the Paul VI mass.

Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read it, anyway. Did you read the comments at all? I thought they were interesting, as well.

I agree with in Heaven there are many rooms...I recently attended an Eastern Rite Liturgy. It was beautiful and I felt very much a part and connected as I was there. I believe any sincere, prayerful, Catholic who is striving to be holy and love the Faith benefits from attending any Sacred Holy Mass Liturgy. Thanks for your post!

I did, MPN, and I thought there were some excellent comments (as there are always, I enjoy her blog very much)

And thank you for "getting it" and putting it into words a bit better than I could. Hugs.

Do you say "God is Holy" in the Eastern Rite? We don't in Orthodoxy, so that was a surprising comment. There's the line right before communion of "One is Holy, One is the Lord" but I didn't gather that was what she meant.

And, Suzanne, that verse was my late Grandmother's favorite, and today is her birthday, thank you.

No, we don't say that, except as you do in "One is Holy, One is the Lord." Maybe she was referring to "Holy God, Holy Mighty One, Holy Immortal One, Have mercy on us." The Trisogion Prayer would stand out for it's repetition, bowing, crossing and such.

Anyway, thanks for following up!!

I wondered about that being what she was referring to. I adore "Holy God" it is one of my favorite parts of the Liturgy. Thanks!
