Communion Plates

On Communion Plates, Redemptionis Sacramentum has this to say

The Communion-plate for the Communion of the faithful should be retained, so as to avoid the danger of the sacred host or some fragment of it falling

Firstly, your blogger rarely sees so many altar servers. Secondly, your blogger rarely sees communion-plates. You can imagine how heartwarming it was to see 10 altar servers at Mass today (in another parish, not my own), each holding a communion-plate. Furthermore it was at a parish smaller than my own.

Well, it is all due to the good priest at that parish you went to for re-introducing such features. He has also emphasised on the bowing at the profession of faith as well as the pater noster chant. But the choirs are slow in responding to implementing the pater noster chant, this will take time.

Too bad you came on the day when the organ and choir mic levels were off balanced. Hence you could only hear on soloist leading to take the place of the choir.

Yes, we were rather vexed at the soloist bellowing in the microphone. Nevertheless, my friends and I liked the sound of the choir. Well done to all of you.

Apart from the Pater Noster chant, the Alleluia (Do-Re-Mi-Do) could also be used.
