Same Prayer, Different Language

Today is the first Sunday of Lent so our parish has moved to the Latin responses during the Eucharistic prayers. Mackenzie’s ears perked up when she heard "benidictus" and she asked, "Are we singing about the pope?"

"Not exactly," I whispered while showing her the sheet with the words, "this is the prayer in Latin."

Satisfied, her attention turned back to mass and, with the sheet of Latin verses in hand, she was prepared to participate. After singing the Agnus Dei, she turned to me and asked, "Was that the Our Father in Italian?"
