At mass this morning there was a couple behind me that seemed to be visiting my parish and their responses during mass were unlike anything I had ever heard. I don’t mean to be judgmental, I am just curious if someone could explain where these responses come from.
After the consecration of the body, the man said something to the effect of “my God and my Lord have mercy on my soul.” Everyone else in mass is obviously silent at this time. He said the same thing after the consecration of the blood of Christ.
Also, during the Our Father, I heard the woman say “deliver us from isolation” rather than “deliver us from evil.”
I am most familiar with the Novus Ordo mass, so I’m mainly just wondering if anyone else has come across this.
