Hey brothers and sisters!
I was traveling a few weeks ago, and it took me through Sunday. I found out the town I was in offered a TLM High Mass at a local parish, so I went. I hadnt gone to TLM in about a month, so I started missing it. It was a VERY small congregation, about a dozen people, all scattered throughout the church. Not that it was bad at all (actually kind of nice, less distractions)
Well, I was fervently praying the Mass all the way up to the Credo, where we of course all stood, kneeled at the incarnation, and stood back up. I was buried in my missal, fervently reflecting and praying the words. I was following the choir-sung creed in terms of when to end my prayer, and I glanced up and saw Father was sitting down, and EVERYONE else was too! In this gigantic empty church, I was the crazy guy standing up when everyone was sitting down. Like having a big long, uncut weed in a freshly mowed lawn! Needless to say I was a bit embarrassed and tried to swallow my pride:blush: and went on.
I guess my question is that should I follow what rate Father is saying the creed , or the choir? I dont remember ever this happening before.
In the past my beloved ex-girlfriend would touch me on the shoulder to give me cues, since then I had just started going to TLM, and needed reminders during the liturgy.
