Fifth Sunday of Easter Sunday 


Anamehawikamek Welcome 



We are a Christian community called together to grow in faith and to celebrate God’s love for us in the Mass and Sacraments of the Catholic Church.  Through the gospel message and our common worship we are challenged to give Christian witness by our lives and service to others.

More consideration must be given attention to: some gestures that we need not to forget and some common responses that we miss to do during Mass;

Gestures (liturgical actions) are accompanying actions that we do to make concrete manifestation of our faith as we celebrate the Sacrament;

1. We begin and end the celebration with the sign of the cross; sometimes I have noticed that some still forget to make the sign of the cross especially at the end (final blessing). Let us always remember that we make the sign of the cross simply as we acknowledge that the Mass is in honor to our One true God in the Trinity; “In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.”

2. Before the reading of the Gospel, the minister introduces the “Gospel according to…” while we respond “Glory to you O Lord” we make again the sign of the cross but this time we do it three times as we make the sign (using our thumb) in our forehead, lips and chest, some are not conscious perhaps that they forget doing this.

3. At the Penitential Act, there is the striking of the breast while saying; “through my fault, through my fault, through my most grievous fault”.

4. In our profession of faith, when it comes to the part where we say; “...and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary and became man”, we need to take a bow.

5. It has become customary to extend and held each other’s hands during the Lord’s Prayer, but recently we were directed to join hands (like how we are in the usual prayer position, no longer joining hands to those at our side); explaining to us that the priest as the main celebrant will be the one who extends both hands palms facing upward, which means that he as the minister gathers all our prayers and lift it up to our Father in heaven. 

6. During Communion, there are two ways when receiving the Holy Species. At one point, we traditionally receive Communion by our tongue (we make a half-bow first). Now, we have another way as permitted by the Commission on the Divine Worship in Vatican, we may receive Communion by our hands (on one palm) and pick it with our fingers and immediately putting it in our mouth. (We must not bring the Host to our pews where we will consume it when we are seated). Either way of receiving Communion, one should not forget that respect must be strictly observed. It is appropriate that we kneel (in prayer) when we return to our seats after receiving the Body (and Blood, for parishes who make Communion in both Species) of Christ, as a gesture of reverence and gratefulness. Make sure that we say Amen (which means you confirm that it is the Body and Blood of Christ… we confirm our belief in the Lord as we ‘take’ him- ‘so be it’), when the minister says; “The Body of Christ” and “The Blood of Christ” as we receive the Blessed Host and Wine. Some of you say “thank you”, it is not the proper response, some do not know what to respond, they just stare and/or smile at the priest. One last very important reminder; let us make it sure that we should be worthy (not in the state of sin) or in our proper disposition before receiving the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ; that is why let us also be reminded of our Eucharistic fast - we are not to take anything (particularly food) an hour before we go to communion, except for water and medicine, please no chewing gum or candy in your mouth when you want to take communion. A very last Pastoral note; Priests, Deacons and Lay Eucharistic ministers are only those who can administer Communion, if there is somebody, or a relative is with you who is not able to come in front for Communion, let the Eucharistic ministers bring the Communion to them, we do this to avoid abuse of the Sacrament in general.

7. With the implementation of the New Roman Missal, some particular responses were changed, conferring it to the original ‘Vulgate translation’; before, when the priest addressed the congregation: “The Lord be with you” we respond “And also with you” but now it was changed to “And with your spirit”. When “Lift up your hearts” is said, here the response did not change we still say; “We lift them up to the Lord” . While when the priest says: “Let us give thanks to the Lord our God”, we respond; “It is right and just” (which before we say: “It is right to give you thanks and praise”)

8. After the Lamb of God when the priest elevates the Blessed Host and say; “Behold the Lamb of God, behold him who takes away the sins of the world, Blessed are those called to the Supper of the Lamb”, while kneeling we respond: “Lord I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed” (before we say; Lord I am not worthy to receive you, but only say the words and I shall be healed).

With the proper gestures and definite responses we carry out during our Eucharistic celebration, we become more intimate in our worship to God our Lord. To God be the glory and honor and power, forever.
