The Young Girl & The Litanies Of The Faithful

30 Jun

I know what “Culture Shock” is, especially when I go from the Tridentine Latin Mass over to The Novus Ordo Mass. In regards to Novelty, this is associated with the Missa Novus Ordo (Or Might that be Opus Dei, I am not sure).
So at The Litany of The Faithful, a 6 Year Old Girl read the Litanies Of The Faithful, perhaps a  Guinness Book Record for Novus Ordo Liturgical Novelty.
So, unless this Child was Baptized, Chrismated and Received The Precious Blood of Christ via Holy Communion Spoon in a Byzantine Rite Catholic Church(The Eastern Orthodox Churches also administer the Sacraments (Mysteries) of Initiation), I suspect that this Child may not have received even 1st Penance, let alone Holy Communion in the Roman/Latin Rite.
In the case of this Solemn Mass Of Thanksgiving for a Newly Ordained Priest, who will now act as this Queens Parish Administrator, this Parish Church was packed to capacity, with Reception and 1st Blessings by the Priest.

The Child was up in the Pulpit, perhaps standing on some form of platform. Then, listening to the Litanies, I recognized variations of Litanies which one responds to during the Byzantine Rite Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom.
It was hard to understand the “Wee One” but I did understand her.

And It Was Good.

Deo Gratias

Vivat Jesus
