In homage to the BVM we used the new inclusive language 1982 liturgy yesterday at St Mark’s. Everyone agreed that it was not inclusive enough, but we’ll keep it going until such times as it becomes truly inclusive and we find alternative words for Father, Lord etc.
I was bemoaning the fact that I haven’t found any good modern hymns for the BVM. (And please don’t suggest Mary, blessed teenage Mother or whatever its called – it just doesn’t cut the mustard). Does anyone know of any good stuff out there? Mind you, Andrew got a standing ovation for Dubois’ Toccata in G major at the end. It was gloriously frothy.
And if you haven’t already seen this on Kelvin’s blog, then you really should. It was a joy to have so many of the Glen10 leaders (part of our Provincial Youth Network) in the front row yesterday doing wonders for our age profile. I could just see them giving their all with Hail Holy Queen.
