I shall be glad when the new Missal comes out. Today's Prayer over the Gifts went like this:
Merciful Lord, we offer this gift of reconciliation so that you will forgive our sins and guide our wayward hearts. We ask this through Christ our Lord.
Ask what? The 'prayer' was a statement. It didn't ask anything, simply stated the reason for offering the gift. Our prayers are with Fr Wadsworth in his new job.
My apologies for the picture; it's the only picture of Fr Andrew that I have. It shows him after an EF Mass in Guildford some ten years ago tucking into Bruno's (my chocolate labrador's) squeaky hamburger.
