And from ADW.org: After the resurrection, Jesus confirmed Peter in the role of shepherd and leader of his flock: "'Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?' He said to him, 'Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.' Jesus said to him,... 'Feed my sheep'" (John 21:15, 17). Christ sent the apostles, and the apostles through their successors, to continue Christ's ministry. Blessed Pope John Paul II provided guidance, instruction, teaching and leadership to the Church and was beatified on May 1, 2011.
CHANGES TO THE ROMAN MISSAL began the First
Sunday of Advent 2011, the weekend of Nov. 26-27, which was also the beginning of a new liturgical
year. At Mother Seton Parish we have two places
for you to follow the new prayers and responses.
First, everything you need to know can be found in
the blue book, called “Revised Order of the Mass
(Hymnal Supplement)” located in the back of the
Hymnal Books placed in the racks on the backs of
the pews. Second, the singing parts of the Mass of
Joy and Peace can be found on the white cards
located in the hymnal racks.
