Second Sodality Mass 12/18

I am pleased to announce that we will be having our second Sodality Mass on Wednesday, December 18th, 6:10pm at Casa Loyola (19 E. Micheltorena), with Father Andrew as our Celebrant. 

I just finished putting the music together and wanted to share it with everyone in case you wanted to prepare. I was so impressed with everyones singing/chanting at the first Mass, please keep up the same level of energy for this Mass. We will be singing an opening/closing hymn, the ordinaries of the Mass (Kyrie, Sanctus/Benedictus, and Agnus Dei, but NO Gloria), and a communion chant. Provided here is the name of each, and a link to a youtube video/recording of each. I will have a printout for everyone at the Mass. 

Opening Hymn: O Come, O Come, Emmanuel
The first verse we will sing in Latin, and the second in English. 
Verse one:
Verse two:
1. Veni, veni Emmanuel, Captivum solve Israel, Qui gemit in exilio Privatus Dei Filio. Gaude, gaude! Emmanuel na scetur prote Israel. 
2. O come, O come, Emmanuel, and ransom captive Israel, that mourns in lonely exile here until the Son of God appear. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emanuel shall come to thee, O Israel. 

Kyrie: Mass XVII (for Advent & Lent)

Sanctus/Benedictus: Mass XVII (for Advent & Lent)

Agnus Dei: Mass XVII (for Advent & Lent)

Communion: Creator of the Stars of Night (Just use the melody, the words aren't exact) 
1. Creator of the stars of night, thy people's everlasting light, O Jesus, Savior of us all, regard thy servants when they call. 
2. Thou, grieving at the bitter cry of all creation doomed to die, didst come to save a ruined race with healing gifts of heav'nly grace. 
3. Thou camest, Bridegroom of the bride, as drew the world to evening tide, proceeding from a virgin shrine, the Son of Man, yet Lord divine.

Closing Hymn: The Almighty King of All Men Born
No Link found! Just sightread and follow me, I guess. 
1. The almighty King of all men born Comes down to save our race forlorn, and takes, who is most gracious, A mortal body like to us. 
2. Who weareth in the heights the crown into a virgin's womb comes down, and in a fleshly form doth dwell to break the chains of death and hell. 
3. The nations that in darkness lay, A glorious light have seen that day, when hearing his creation's groan, the Saviour in the earth is known. 

I hope to see you all there. We will be going to Harry's afterwards!
Please share this with any new friends or guests that might like to come. 

God Bless,
