"New Translation Tuesday" greetings from Dallas, Texas. Flew here very early this morning for the Southwest Liturgical Conference.
At the prayer services at the retreat in the Rockville Center Diocese on Sunday, the scripture readings were concluded with the chanting of "The Word of the Lord. Thanks be to God." With a roomful of pastoral musicians, it went splendidly. Just wondering how many of you have implemented this in your parish? I have heard from some that they are hesitant to ask the lectors to sing. I have been in at least one parish where the cantor came to the microphone at the cantor stand and did the chant following the lector's proclamation of the reading.
So, feel free to comment. If you have implemented this option, how is it going? If you haven't, do you plan on doing so?
Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
