Default No Gloria during Mass

Can the Gloria be left out during Mass? During Mass, it was obvious our Priest was sick and not feeling well. He could have just forgot it. Thanks, Tim

As Advent is a season of Pennance and Anticipation, the Gloria is set aside. We will hear the Gloria again at Christmas!!

Default Re: No Gloria during Mass

During Advent (as during Lent), the Gloria is suppressed (omitted, if you will). However, Advent carries two exceptions: the Solemnity of the Immaculae Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe. The Gloria is to be sung/recited during these two days, the former because it is a holy day of obligation, the latter because it is a feast in the United States (as well as a Holy Day of Obligation in Mexico).

Lent (depending on when the season begins and ends) carries with it a couple of exceptions: March 17th, the Feast of St. Joseph and March 25th, the Feast of the Annunciation of Our Lord). The Goria is to be sung/recited; however, the Gospel Acclamation cannot be Alleluia; it must be one of the Lenten forms. I may be wrong on this, but the Feast of the Chair of Peter might count as an occasion when the Gloria is sung/recited. This falls on February 22nd and is a huge feast at the Vatican, for obvious reasons. As I said, these dates are dependent on whether or not they fall during the Lenten season.

It does. The Gloria is recited on Feasts and Solemnities of which the Chair of St. Peter is one (a Feast)

Thank you, AJV. I thought for a minute I was going to be a font of misinformation on this issue. If memory serves, I think Ash Wednesday is coming early this liturgical year, so I guess we will be having the Gloria for the Feast of the Chair of Peter during Lent.

Yes, Ash Wednesday is February 6.

Why no "Alleluia" song during Lent before the Gospel reading? Just what is the explanation behind this historical tradition.
Thanks,
Keith

The 'Alleluia' is an expression of unestrained joy and happiness, as is the 'Gloria' as well. As such they are considered not to fit in with the more restrained and penitential atmosphere of Lent and Advent.

Why do some parishes not put holy water in fonts to sign ourselves with during Lenten season?

Because they are confused.

During Lent, the Gloria may be sung/recited during:

Saint Joseph's Day: March 19th (moved to the 17th this year because it fell during holy week)
The Chair of St. Peter: February 22nd

Actually, St. Joseph is moved to Saturday, 15 March this year. It is most unusual to see it transferred to a date before its normal celebration.

The other day during Lent that the Gloria is normally sung is the Solemnity of the Annunciation of Our Lord to the BVM, 25 March. Because that falls during Easter week this year, it is transferred to 31 March, the first free date after the Easter Octave.
