Worship Aid for Pope Francis’ Installation Mass

The worship aid (PDF) can be downloaded from the Vatican website.

(It’s got music in it! Notes for the chants! :happy dance: )

America Magazine has a good outline of the mass, its associated rites, and who will be there. Some of the rites occur at St Peter’s Tomb prior to the mass itself, starting “around 9:15” Rome time, while music plays in the square.

I am not at all surprised that he will be using the readings of the day, the feast of St. Joseph. I’m touched that the gospel will be chanted in Greek only, and interested that the first and second readings will be in English and Spanish, respectively.

Gracious God, we pray for your holy catholic church.
Fill it with your truth;
Keep it in your peace.
Where it is corrupt, reform it.
Where it is in error, correct it.
Where it is right, defend it.
Where it is in want, provide for it.
Where it is divided, reunite it;
for the sake of your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ.
