Alleluia at the end of the Gospel

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q:  Do you support the singing of the Alleluia as the people’s response at the end of the proclaimed Gospel?

A:  In general, no. I think that the acclamation concluding the gospel is especially rich: “Praise to you, Lord Jesus Christ,” because Christ continues to speak today in the proclamation of the gospel.

However, some people like the alleluia after the gospel especially if the procession is lengthy. At papal masses, for example, it’s somewhat common.

In general, though, the liturgy does not draw attention to any procession after the gospel. It isn’t as important as the procession before it.
