Liturgical Hints & Ideas

During Ordinary Time in Year B we will highlight passages from the new General Instruction on the Roman Missal (GIRM) that pertain to music during the liturgy. The GIRM contains rubrics and instructions (some of them new) for the celebration of the Mass. The first section below is a direct quote from the English translation of the document. The second section is a commentary on the passage.

Structure, Elements and Parts of the Mass: The Penitential Act (GIRM #51-52)

The Priest calls upon the whole community to take part in the Penitential Act, which, after a brief pause for silence, it does by means of a formula of general confession. The rite concludes with the Priest's absolution, which, however, lacks the efficacy of the Sacrament of Penance. From time to time on Sundays, especially in Easter Time, instead of the customary Penitential Act, the blessing and sprinkling of water may take place as a reminder of Baptism.

After the Penitential Act, the Kyrie eleison (Lord, have mercy). is always begun, unless it has already been part of the Penitential Act. Since it is a chant by which the faithful acclaim the Lord and implore his mercy, it is usually executed by everyone, that is to say, with the people and the choir or cantor taking part in it. Each acclamation is usually pronounced twice, though it is not to be excluded that it be repeated several times, by reason of the character of the various languages, as well as of the artistry of the music or of other circumstances. When the Kyrie is sung as part of the Penitential Act, a "trope" precedes each acclamation.

Commentary: There are three options for the Penitential Act, only the third of which includes the Kyrie eleison, as mentioned above:

  1. The Confiteor + the Kyrie
  2. The dialogue beginning, "Have mercy on us, O Lord. For we have sinned against you…" + the Kyrie
  3. The trope formulas, each trope being followed by "Lord, have mercy" or "Christ, have mercy."

Option #3 is by far the most familiar [rivaling Eucharistic Prayer #2 in "wrist-watch-shackled" parishes]. If your congregation doesn't know the Confiteor from Option #1, teach them this ancient penitetnial prayer by using Option #1 for an extending period. If even you've never heard the dialogue in Option #2, then it's time to learn that along with your congregation. Introducing Option #2 requires much cooperation from the priest, since he has a part in the dialogue [I'll bet he don't know this either!]. On introducing Option #2, do it for an extended period of time — all of Lent, perhaps.

Note that it is not permitted to simply recite the Kyrie eleison (Lord, have mercy) alone, without the Confiteor or tropes that precede it.

To be continued next Sunday...
