From a reader:
How many parishes observed this feast day of St. Mark with the traditional procession chanting the litany of the saints?
Ours followed a sung ad orientem Novus Ordo Mass with incense and Kyrie (Gr.), Sanctus, Mysterium Fidei, Per ipsum, Agnus Dei, and Regina Caeli (at end). After our priest had changed from his red Roman vestment to a violet Roman cope, the chant began at the foot of the altar. The procession exited up the main aisle and out through the narthex, around through the parking lot to the back entrance to our perpetual adoration chapel, where the Litany of the Saints (in Latin) concluded with the traditional supplications, and was followed by a brief Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament.
The copyright restrictions on Novus Ordo materials (thankfully) forced us to duplicate the traditional Latin "In Litaniis Majoribus et Minoribus" from the Liber Usualis for the people to use.
Here is a question…
How many of you have never even heard of this tradition before now?
