While out of town this weekend for a funeral I witnessed a new oddity during the Lord’s Prayer.
During the vigil on Friday and at the grave site on Saturday, the deacon leading the services used the KJV language of the Lord’s Prayer (for thine is the kingdom…).
It struck me and immediately distracted me from the purpose of the prayer. I was so glad to not have a hand shoved into my face but then this happened.
Let me be clear that this did not occur in the funeral mass. Is this something new?
