Before setting up the WLP booth at the Hynes Convention Center for the National Catholic Education Association Convention, had some time for some Boston fare. Here's the restaurant:
And here's the "fare:"
This is a genuine New England Lobster Roll, or as some say in these parts, "Lobstah Roll." Delicious.
It's great to be here in this beauitful city.
Well, the Triduum had its ups and downs for me, with respect to the new translation. I found the newly translated intercessions on Good Friday to be quite good. Our deacon proclaimed the intention and then our pastor chanted the concluding prayer for each one. I thought the language was direct and beautiful, quite easy to grasp and pray.
My pastor did a valiant job with the various prayers prayed after the readings at the Easter Vigil. He was slow and well-paced. Unfortunately, some of these prayers are just constructed so poorly. Even though I had studied them, I struggled with them. I think they are some of the poorest translations in the new Missal, which saddened me.
My question to you: What was your experience, particularly of the Good Friday intercessions and the prayers after the readings at the Easter Vigil?
Well, things shifts into high gear here tomorrow. It's off to Boston's North End for some Italian food tonight.
Happy Easter Octave!
Gotta sing. Gotta pray.
