Episode 8 – Before the Throne of God – A Biblical Way of Praying the Mass with Fr. Timothy Gallagher O.M.V.
We continue our conversation with Fr. Gallagher discussing the encouragements given by Venerable Bruno Lanteri in regards to a biblical way of praying the Mass. In this episode, Fr. Gallagher reflects on the Preface and the Holy, Holy, Holy
Take a moment and pray:
The Lord be with you.
And with your spirit.
Lift up your hearts (yes, lift up your heart in praise).
We lift them up to the Lord.
Let us give thanks to the Lord our God (thanks for so many blessings received).
It is right and just.
It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation (to give thanks to God is truly right, truly just, a duty, and a means of salvation),
always and everywhere to give you thanks (always, everywhere),
Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God, through Christ our Lord.
For through his Paschal Mystery (his death and Resurrection),
he accomplished the marvelous deed, by which he has freed us from the yoke of sin and death (free, in him, to live without sin, free for life beyond death),
summoning us to the glory of being now called a chosen race, a royal priesthood (we are this race and this priesthood),
holy nation, a people for your own possession (and a holy nation, belonging to the One who loves us),
(proclaim these by our lives, our witness, our words),
for you have called us out of darkness into your own wonderful light (you have given us as our light and guide in this life).
And so, with Angels and Archangels,
with Thrones and Dominions,
and with all the hosts and Powers of heaven (united with the Heavenly Court),
we sing the hymn of your glory,
as without end we acclaim:
Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God of hosts.
Heaven and earth are full of your glory (the vision of Isaiah: “Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of Hosts! All the earth is filled with his glory!” [Isa. 6:3]).
Hosanna in the highest (hosanna: a cry of praise and adoration).
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord (the crowds call to Jesus on Palm Sunday, “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord!” [Mark 11:9]).
Hosanna in the highest.
