Chanting the Gospel

Whispers in the Loggia provides the link to the Bishop McFadden's funeral Mass, which is currently taking place.

The transitional Deacon, Rev. Mr. Dan Richards, is chanting the Gospel beautifully as I write. It is interesting that this lovely plainchant follows the Celtic Alleluia--a combination that reflects our complicated liturgical times.

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them. May the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
