My = father's a > permanent deacon, and he's even done baptisms.   I hear ya, Carlo, and agree, mostly. I too am a deacon. And must add = that the deacon's duties include the Kyrie (we use the old Litany from the beginning of the enarxis of the Byzantine Great Litany, chanted by the deacon); as well as the intercessory prayers. But two things:   1. While you concede that "a deacon may say those final words," can we agree that it is DESIRABLE for a deacon to say those final words?   2. The sign of peace? I'm probably naive, but I've never seen a deacon = do that. Are you sure?   Alan

(back) Subject: OFF-TOPIC: liturgy (DELETE IF NOT INTERESTED) (grin) From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Fri, 05 Jan 2001 09:43:35 -0800   The Christian Kalendar has always been a makeshift ... Julian, Gregorian, Lunar elements plopped in a blender and put on "frenzy" (grin). And it's ALL based on a moveable feast (Easter).   In addition, you have three cycles running one on top of the other:   (1) the life of Our Lord, compressing the events of 33 years into one year ... thus you have the celebration of the Annunciation in the middle of Lent (2) the seasons of the year ... Advent, Lent, etc. (3) the lives of the saints   Vatican !! added a fourth layer (Ordinary Time) and insisted that it take precedence over (3), and in some cases (1); Anglicans and Lutherans went along, for the most part   Compounding the difficulty is the modern tendency to transfer feasts to Sunday: Epiphany, Ascension, etc.   All that collided in 2000 with Christmas Eve falling on a Sunday ... that compressed the number of Sundays after Christmas to one instead of the usual two.   Rome transferred Epiphany to Sunday, displacing what should have been (I guess) the 1st Sunday in Ordinary Time. We are doing the same thing, displacing what for us should have been Epiphany 1; so the next Sunday will be Epiphany 2. It doesn't matter that much for us, since we read the old one-year lectionary ... we'll pick up the First Sunday After Epiphany again next year.   But I would object to calling it "legalism" ... the Kalendar has become MORE flexible in some ways, not less. Liturgical order is simply an organized way of doing things ... occasionally, though, like this year, it DOES get kinda interesting figuring out just what the order IS (grin).   Cheers,   Bud

Richard Keys Biggs, not related to EPB, Used to play a large Casavant in a Presbyterian Church in Canada. It was powered by a water motor. He wanted a blower! Well the water motor would go to off if the unit were kicked at just the right moment. The postludes were usually chosen, and the organ would weeze to a hault.   Have you perfected the perfect anti Hammond move??? Richard finally did get his blower! :)   Richard Biggs, came to California to play at Blessed Sacrament Church in Hollywood in 1934. It had a blower, and was a four manual Casavant.
