Last Sunday, I went to another Parish which has a 6PM Mass on Sunday. After the First Reading, the cantor starting singing a song instead (I believe it is song #700 in the OCP “Today’s Missal”) instead of singing the Psalm.
Then, this past Sunday, my own Parish did the same thing with the exact same song.
For me, the piano playing is way to modern, and it sounded like I was at a gospel choir concert instead of Mass (both times). But most importantly, they removed something the Bible and inserted something not from the Bible.
Is skipping the Psalm in place of a song allowed?
God Bless and Merry Christmas.
