Each Sunday has been prepared according to a theme (or in the case of Ordinary Time, two themes). The theme for the celebration is not the title of the reflection in the first page of the missalette, nor should we say that the theme for the day.
Themes of particular celebrations may be deduced from the following:
Presidential Prayers (especially the Opening Prayer and the Preface)
We have become so dependent on Sambuhay and Euchalette that it's become a routine and it's not really good liturgy.
This blog contains the liturgy for the Mass prepared and arranged by Jeff for the Parish of our Lady of Perpetual Help - Project 8, instructions on the good ordering of the liturgy, articles he wrote for the Diocesan Ministry for Liturgical Affairs of Cubao, papers he wrote for his MA classes in the Graduate School of Liturgy of San Beda, and thoughts on liturgy which he wrote in his sleep.
Should you wish to do away with missalettes, here's something better.
Liturgy is the exercise of the priestly office of Jesus Christ wherein the glorification of God and the sanctification of humanity, the whole public worship is performed by the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ, that is, by the Head and His members, and is signified by signs perceptible to the senses, and is effected in a way which corresponds with each of these signs. (SC 7)
The liturgy is the summit toward which the activity of the Church is directed; at the same time it is the font from which all her power flows. (SC 10)
Jeff is an MA student at the Graduate School of Liturgy of San Beda College and a member of the Pastoral Team of the Diocesan Ministry for Liturgical Affairs of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Cubao. Jeff is part of the Guidelines, Publications and Website Committees of the DMLA. He prepares the liturgies found in this blog for the Parish of Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Project 8 where he is Worship Coordinator and Pastoral Worker.
Good Liturgy is prepared in the context of and by the community.
Good liturgy is always planned. The opposite kind is by the missalette. You know that a parish has good liturgy when you can't see any missalette near the priest.
