The Mystery of Faith

After the rite of institution, the presider invites us into the the mystery of faith. He will now say simply "The mystery of faith." Why we've cut "let us proclaim" I don't know. Guess it wasn't in the Latin. Sure is nice to help invite people, though.

But we'll get used to it.

The congregation responds in one of three ways:
We proclaim your death, O Lord,
and profess your Resurrection until you come again.
When we eat this Bread and drink this Cup,
we proclaim your death, O Lord, until you come again.
Save us, Savior of the world,
for by your Cross and Resurrection you have set us free.

Again, the texts are a little different, and the third is a little wonky -- Save us, O Savior? Writers will have conniptions. But then we'll get used to them.

Have a great weekend.

It's also odd one out as the others are statements of faith "We proclaim..." and this one is a request for salvation.
