“How can we enter into this interior disposition except by turning physically—all together, priest and faithful—toward the Lord who comes, toward the East symbolized by the apse where the cross is enthroned? The outward orientation leads us to the interior orientation that it symbolizes. Since apostolic times, Christians have been familiar with this way of praying. It is not a matter of celebrating with one’s back to the people or facing them, but toward the East, «ad Dominum», toward the Lord.”
— Robert Cardinal Sarah, Prefect of the Vatican's Congregation for Divine Worship (October 2016)

GABC Propers Tool Revisited
published 30 December 2017 by Veronica Brandt

APPY CHRISTMAS! At this time of year any shortcuts can be welcome – especially here in the Southern Hemisphere where the summer heat adds to the tiredness.

Recently I had the opportunity to revisit Benjamin Bloomfield’s GABC Propers Tool. I’ve made a short screencast to show how you can prepare the propers and ordinaries interleaved ready for singers who may not be adept at finding their place in the regular books. Even with some explanation it still comes in at under 4 minutes.

This way is very quick and easy, though it doesn’t give you the translations like the Goupil Gradual does.

I hope you have a Happy New Year!
