We use Prayer C once a year…usually in Epiphany, which means we are using it right now. “This fragile earth, our island home” is my favorite part.

What I find weird is the placement of the epiclesis right after the Sanctus. I have a congregation where half of them fall to their knees regardless, when the Sanctus ends. So they are rumbling with kneelers, etc. while I am invoking the Holy Spirit. (and I will not give a pause so they can kneel, because the rubric says “The Celebrant continues,” with no reference to body posture)

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
