Hi good folk at CA!
Two issues popped up recently that just ruffles my feathers a bit...
- The choir sings the Lamb of God like a filler for the time it takes the Priest to portion the wafers for the extraordinary ministers of communion. So instead of singing it 3 times, they've gone on for 4 or sometimes 5 times before they end it "Grant us peace" ... "Have mercy on us" goes on till the choir mistress thinks the Priest is ready to give out communion.
Something's off here ... what exactly?
- The sign of the cross. Is it forehead, chest, shoulder to shoulder OR forehead to stomach, shoulder to shoulder?
Sources, please. Thanks.
