Learn the parts of the Mass
At St. Mary's, we often chant Mass VIII-also known as Missa de Angelis (Mass of the Angels).
The parts of the Mass are ancient, and are all beautiful prayers. The Kyrie is a Greek chant, asking God for mercy. The Latin Gloria and the Sanctus praise God's glory and majesty, and the Agnus Dei proclaims the Lamb of God is in our midst. Chanting them together is a powerful way to pray, and understanding what they mean adds just one more layer of depth.
