Memorial Acclamation

  /   Saturday June 28, 2003  

I am continuing listening to the aforementioned tape set. While I was at the Pauline Book Store, our local Catholic bookstore, I ran across
The Holy Eucharist
by Cardinal Arinze. I figured that it must be good if he wrote it, so I bought it. It looks like it is a good, simple introductory work.

Anyway, back to the CD set. Fr. Collins suggested that the memorial acclamation after the consecration “Christ has died; Christ is risen; Christ will come again” is inappropriate. The reason for this is that Christ is present in our midst, so we shouldn’t speak of him in the third person. He also mentions that there was nothing in the original Latin that would translate in this manner.

Whether you agree with him or not, this CD-set is well worth buying. It has been a great help in understanding the papal encyclical.
