Q: Our choir members did much deliberation over the understanding of various parts of Mass, particularly in relation to the choice of hymns, namely :
- Entrance: it relates to the theme of the Mass rather than a gathering song.
- Offertory: Besides hymn relating to bread and wine, there is the element of ourselves being offered together with Christ’s
- Communion: More reflective – to ruminate on the gift of Christ in the Eucharist; thanksgjving even
We also had a few debates over hymns that have the singular noun “I” in the lyrics, the contention is that the Mass is a communal worship rather than a personal one.
Are we correct so far? If not please help us in our understanding.
