We has an oops...
It's been a very long day. This will be a very short post with a promise that I'll write more tomorrow to explain some of my cryptic blatherings here.
Oops #1: "And also... with your spirit." And I did, without thinking, exactly what I thought I'd do: slip into responses typical of Rite I ("And with thy spirit"... at the Gospel: "Glory be to thee, O Christ"...). More later on this and my first impressions of the new translation of the Roman Missal. (I do like it, but I can see it will take the people a while to get used to it. And this is despite those lovely cards that the Diocese of Raleigh made available to all parishes.)
Oops #2: Advent Wreath Catastrophe. You'll have to wait until I have more brain cells to explain this one. No candles, fir branches, or holly berries were harmed in the process of the oops, although a choir anthem had to be sacrificed.
Oops #3: So much for posting every day in December. I already missed a day. :P

Prayer for Church Musicians and Artists
O God, whom saints and angels delight to worship in heaven: Be ever present with your servants who seek through art and music to perfect the praises offered by your people on earth; and grant to them even now glimpses of your beauty, and make them worthy at length to behold it unveiled for evermore; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. (BCP, p. 819)
