One went scout camping, the other had a Piano Thing. Mass Saturday night at the Cathedral, where the liturgical ideals of the Church are lived out in a wonderful way – check out the weekly music guides here. This past weekend, the gradual was sung rather than a responsorial psalm. A our music director wrote:
The Gradual, like the Responsorial Psalm, is designed as a meditation upon the readings of the day. It also remains the Church’s “first option” for the chant between the two readings. A particularly positive trait of the Gradual during the Easter season is that it is always simply an alleluia refrain, reminding us more insistently that we have left the penitential season of Lent and remain in the season of profound joy and rejoicing!
Then music on Sunday, with a little bit of video-Instagramming experimentation.
As I said before, on our upcoming trip to Italy, I will be experimenting more with streaming video through both Instagram and Periscope. Still haven’t tried the latter. I’m on it, though. (Look me up via my Twitter handle – amywelborn2)
Speaking of Italy and today’ feat of St. Mark:
The Facebook feed is full of First Communion, wedding and soon, graduation photos. If you’d like a First Communion gift – check here. I have signed books for sale. I don’t have any of the saints books on hand, but you can go here for that. Mother’s Day, too – a 365 day devotional, maybe?
