I want to try an experiment. Virtual Prayer for Pope Benedict. “Oremus pro Pontifice nostro Benedicto!”
I have a recording of the Prayer for the Pope on the Z-Cam’s live stream. It rotates through the playlist. But I make the responses myself.
I would like to a virtual congregation of you, readers of the blog and listeners of the stream.
If you want to participate, you have to record yourself and send it to me by email. It would be best to send an mp3. In your email subject line put: VIRTUAL CONGREGATION.
I don’t have to covert mp3 files. They are best. I like mp3s. I don’t like non-mp3s. Mp3s find favor and others don’t. Being the easiest to work with, Fr. Z prefers mp3s.
EMAIL ADDRESS HERE. (I don’t think you can attach files when sending me mail through the “Contact” button, above.)
We will use Latin.
I will use software to edit them together to create a virtual congregation responding.
Here are the responses you should record… in order… with about 5 seconds between each one.
It might take a while to put this together, but it could be a good project.
I have received a few files. I should have anticipated that everyone would read at a different pace.
Here is the base file I am working from. HERE.
If you put on head phones and listen to this as you record, we will be much much closer together and it will be much much easier to edit together.
Here’s how it goes:
Fr. Z. Oremus pro Pontifice nostro Benedicto.
YOU: Dominus conservet eum, et vivificet eum, et beatum faciat eum in terra, et non tradat eum in animam inimicorum eius.
Fr. Z: Pater noster qui es in coelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum;
adveniat regnum tuum,
fiat voluntas tua,
sicut in coelo et in terra.
YOU: Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra,
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
et ne nos inducas in tentationem
sed libera nos a malo. Amen.
Fr. Z: Ave Maria, gratia plena; Dominus tecum: benedicta tu in mulieribus, et benedictus fructus ventris tui Iesus.
YOU: Sancta Maria, Mater Dei ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen.
FR. Z: Deus, omnium fidelium pastor et rector, famulum tuum Benedicto., quem pastorem Ecclesiae tuae praeesse voluisti, propitius respice: da ei, quaesumus, verbo et exemplo, quibus praeest, proficere: ut ad vitam, una cum grege sibi credito, perveniat sempiternam. Per Christum, Dominum nostrum.
