Recently our parish has started using this as a response during the memorial acclamation:
We remember how you loved us to Your death,
And still we celebrate for You are with us here.
And we believe that we will see You
when you come in Your glory, Lord.
We remember, we celebrate, we believe!
These are lyrics from a modern hymn. Is this liturgically acceptable? I have always been under the impression that there are only 4 approved responses.
As much of an abuse that this is (and I am not defending it), it is closer to being like a memorial acclamation than "Christ has died. Christ is risen. Christ will come again." It is at least directed at Our Lord.
Anyone remember the 1980s addition of "Keep in mind that Christ has died for us. He is risen from the dead. He is our saving Lord and joy for all ages" as a memorial acclamation. People have taken so many liberties with the Mass.
I am so glad the new translation is coming out.
