Understanding the Liturgy Pt. 1

  • The Church of Our Saviour 535 West Roses Road San Gabriel, CA (map)

Join us a 9AM in Cleaver Hall with Jonathan Burke!

Jonathan reports the following:

A Canonical Thing Happened
on the way to Sunday’s Forum


Something historic,
Something caloric,
Something for everyone:
         Liturgical insight!

Something that’s quoted,
Something devoted,
Something for everyone:
         Liturgical insight!

Rite One or Two?
        Latin or Greek?
Kneeling or standing,
        You’re not a freak.

Gospel, Epistle;
Wait for dismissal;
Rubrics will help you do it right!
No service sorrow:
        Liturgy, liturgy, liturgy,
        Liturgy, liturgy, liturgy,
        Liturgy, liturgy, liturgy

With thanks to Marion J. Hatchett
