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!!!
