Silence in the Mass (Video)

My second “homily” for my homiletics course.  This time around, we had to do a mystagogical homily, which means a homily that reflects on something from the liturgy, rather than the readings.  I chose to reflect further on the meaning of silence in the Mass, and how the General Instruction of the Roman Missal gives guidelines as to the purpose behind each liturgical act of silence.  We aren’t just waiting around for the next thing, but rather the silence is there for a purpose.  If you aren’t making use of the silence, you’re missing out!!!


About Fr. Steve

I am happily a priest of Diocese of London, Ontario, as of April 25, 2015! Hooray!!! Some people are afraid to ask clergy questions sometimes, because they are worried about "what he'll think of me". I am happy to engage in any discussions you might want to have with me about the faith, and trust me, I have heard and probably even lived many of the crazy stories people might share and am not seeking to look down on you, but to help lift you up, wherever you are, to whatever degree you are willing to go. It's about you, and your relationship with God. That is what is most important to me. Since the Lord loves you without qualification, I try to impart the same courtesy.
