I've been looking forward to the new Mass translation since I first heard about it several years ago. I'm kind of a liturgy bum... I read the General Instruction of the Roman Missal in my spare time.
Finally the First Sunday of Advent arrived and I'd practiced all of the new responses several times at home just to be ready. I wasn't going to be one of those auto-pilot Catholics. I was going to be ready and alert with full, conscious, active participation!!
I aced the first few and then... well... my mind started to wander around the Sign of Peace and I blurted out the old "And also with you." GAAAH!
Duly humbled, duly humbled.
How did you do yesterday with the new translation of the Mass?
