Celebrating Mass

This takes some getting used to.  I concelebrated today, and I had to remind myself not to be a deacon.  I still act as a deacon when I read the Gospel (It’s really the deacon’s ministry.  If there is no deacon, the priest takes on this ministry, but if there is a deacon, he has the first right to it), but I also participate in the Eucharistic prayer.

It’s probably a good thing I don’t know what’s really going on at Mass.  I might be scared to death.  It’s quite a responsibility.

I’m on vacation, and snowed in. Wisconsin got hit pretty hard. I was scheduled to celebrate a Mass at a Catholic high school, but school is out today. I celebrated Mass at my parents’ home (another first).

Now I’m listening to a 45 of the Harmonicats – Gallop of the Comedians. They sure can play. That’s right, they are still going after all these years.
