Our Pastor had Christ’s part, and he had some Latin to read, didn’t he?
A little humor here: Our new Deacon had the Narrator’s part, and, he missed reading the line in the Gospel where Christ breathed his last breath and died. He then paged ahead and read something from perhaps another version of the Gospel which was further along. Our Pastor interrupted and said, “I think that we should all kneel.” When kneeling, the Deacon must have caught his error, for, on rising, he had found his place again in the Narration!
The other thing that happened, and, if they read (not "red’) this, I am sorry for telling on them: The men of the Parish were having there weekend retreat. They were sitting together at the 9 am Mass. When the crowd was to say “Prophecy!” (long “i” - verb), they said in unison using the (noun) pronounciation “Prophe-cee!”
We were allowed to sit through the beginning, but, once standing that was the posture until the end of this long Gospel.
